Quality assurance-related policies
Find guidance on approval processes and mechanisms the University uses to assure the quality of student education academic provision.
Programme and module approval
New courses and changed courses need formal approval before they can be offered to students.
The University operates a system of deliberative committees relating to taught student education and to research postgraduate studies.
Student education review
A number of formal reviews at school and university level evaluate modules, programmes, school procedures and other issues.
Teaching Enhancement Scheme
TES is the University's flexible and supportive teaching development scheme.
Responding to your feedback
The University takes student views seriously and uses student feedback to inform decision making processes and improve the student experience.
Collaborative provision involves the award of academic credit that is delivered, assessed or supported in partnership between two or more organisations.
External examiners are an essential part of the University's quality assurance processes. The role of the external examiner is to provide assurance to the University that its assessment system is fair and operated equitably, and to ensure comparability of the University's standards with those in peer institutions.
