Programme Monitoring and Review

We conduct regular reviews of our programmes and students’ success in achieving the intended learning outcomes. These reviews occur at all levels from individual modules to entire subjects, and are consistent with the expectations outlined in Chapters A4 and B8 of the UK Quality Code.

Annual Monitoring

Annual Monitoring is a regular evaluation by Colleges of the academic provision offered during the previous academic year. Programme reports are completed and considered by the relevant Departmental Academic Committees. Inter-departmental review of the Programme and Departmental Evaluation reports is undertaken on behalf of the College Education Committee and the College Annual Monitoring Report is sent to Senate for approval.

Strategic Review

The University employs Strategic Review to manage its academic portfolio. This is a business process which informs quality, but it is not a quality assurance process.
