Designing Teaching Diversely – Qualified Mentoring and Innovative Study Models (LQI)

Tasks and Goals of the Project

The LQI project supports the development and implementation of excellent teaching to sustainably enable competence-oriented education at the UAS Kiel. This serves the direct implementation of the aims of the Bologna process.

The project is specifically geared towards the optimisation of consultation and the mentoring of students and also the realisation of structural study measures.

The overriding/major goal is the improvement of academic performance and the graduation rate within the regular study period. This should occur by increasing the students’ average credit quota to 60% in the first two semesters. Indirect objective is the reduction of the drop-out rate, as long as it is traceable to structural causes at the university.


The LQI project supports this prioritisation through a measures package of 16 subprojects divided into the following operational fields:

Operational Field I:          
Improvement of the Study Guidance and Mentoring at all levels of the university, especially for measures and projects which aim to intensify the introductory phase with regard to the heterogeneous student body.

Operational Field  II:         
Development of Innovative Study Models especially to increase practical orientation (structural measures, term division, module block building) with project-oriented start-up funding or consolidation of innovative disciplinary and interdisciplinary study models.
