Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance

It's essential we maintain consistent quality in what we offer and how we operate.

Our standards are all set out in the Quality Manual and assured through regular reviews and monitoring.


Monitoring and reviewing methods


Annual monitoring

Each year, every school is asked to monitor its courses to check that processes are working well and make any improvements needed.

We consider external examiners' reports, reviews of changes to modules and programmes, and consideration of feedback from students.


Educational Enhancement and Assurance Reviews

Every academic school and department goes through an Educational Enhancement and Assurance Review (EEAR) every three or four years. This covers all taught programmes (including the taught elements of research degrees) and aims to support the school or department in:

  • reviewing its quality assurance and enhancement activities
  • identifying areas for improvement
  • improving the student experience of teaching and learning.
