Architecture is one of the disciplines of study included in the MRA (mutual recognition agreement) of the WTO, so architectural education in BoA must conform to global standards. As one of the most prominent study programs at Udayana University, BoA has a medium-term objective of producing graduates whose quality meets international educational standards. BoA internationalizes by acquiring international accreditation from world architectural accreditation bodies such as KAAB (Korean Architectural Accreditation BoArd), a member of the Canberra Accord, or other international accreditation bodies. AUN QA was the initial step for BoA to obtain international accreditation in the field of architecture.

The preparation of the SAR (Self-Assessment Report) AUN-QA for the Bachelor of Architecture program has been carried out for approximately one year, from the Even semester of the 2021/2022 academic year to the Even of the 2022/2023 academic year. In preparing SARs, there are several series of activities carried out, from FGD with alumni and users, benchmarking with ITS which has received AUN-QA certification, to socializing the written SAR results to students, lecturers, supporting staffs, alumni and users. After the SAR AUN-QA was sent on June 8 2023, BOA carried out an orientation held by the committee and preparations to undergo a field evaluation which was carried out on August 8 – 10, 2023.

The opening of the field assessment was carried out on June 8 2023 and a site visit was immediately carried out at the facilities at the university level. Activities at the Faculty level were carried out in the afternoon and opened by a briefing from the Dean, Deputy Dean, Coordinator of BOA, and the SAR team with the assessor team, Prof. Dr. Clarita D. Carillo (lead assessor) and Asst. Prof. Nimit Mengveha. Site visits at the faculty and study program level were carried out after lunch, then immediately followed by a meeting of the assessor team with educational staff, lecturers and students.

The Bachelor of Architecture would like to express our deepest gratitude to all parties involved in this AUN-QA certification activity for the cooperation and support so that the activity could run smoothly and got the best results for this study program. Hopefully this certification can encourage BOA to always do our best for the world of education and make significant contributions to society and the country through research and community service.
