Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, CTU has conducted the external remote/online assessment for its study programs. The transformation of assessment methods shows the flexibility of the ASEAN University Network (AUN) and the strong commitment of member universities in ensuring the quality of education in the COVID-19 and the new normal context.

Following the success of the first remote/online assessment in March 2021, CTU has prepared and been ready for the 252nd assessment under AUN-QA which is going to be held from the 13th to 17th of December 2021 for 4 study programs: (1) Land Management (College of Environment and Natural Resources), (2) Chemistry (College of Natural Sciences), (3) Crop Sciences, and (4) Food Technology (College of Agriculture).

Unlike the onsite assessment, the organization of external assessment under the remote/online mode requires careful preparation of technical stages, personnel mobilization and allocation as well as smooth coordination in activities among the relevant units and individuals in order to help the AUN-QA Assessors feel as if they are conducting the real onsite assessment.
