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  Part A and Chapter 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. Block reviews are completed and considered by the relevant Board of Studies and Programme reports are completed and considered by the relevant Departmental Management Board. Inter-departmental review of Programmes and Departmental Evaluation reports are undertaken on behalf of the College Education Committee, and the College Annual Monitoring Report is sent to Senate for approval.

Regulatory Audit

This reviews the implementation of the University's policies, processes and practices and makes recommendations for enhancement where appropriate.

Periodic Programme Review (PPR)

Programme validity and relevance is essential to maintaining exceptional academic provision. To ensure our programmes continue to meet the high standards outlined in Part A of the UK Quality Code, periodic reviews of a College's entire taught provision occur every 5 years.

Periodic Programme Review Procedure

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.
