Academic quality and standards

Information on the university's internal procedures for assuring academic quality and standards and qualitative data on the quality and standards of teaching and learning.

The University monitors and reviews its degree programmes in two main ways. Boards of Studies are responsible for carrying out annual monitoring of all those programmes for which they are responsible, using a range of information, including statistical data and the views of External Examiners and students. See Guide to policies and procedures for teaching and learning. In addition, every six years, all taught programmes in a particular subject area undergo Periodic Review, which is a full-scale review of these programmes carried out by a panel which includes external subject experts.


External review information

As with all other Higher Education Institutions in the UK, the University and its degrees are subject to Institutional audit by a range of bodies and organisations, including the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).


Corporate relations

Information relating to the university's links with employers and the development of learning programmes.

  • Links with employers

The University publishes information relating its links with employers on the Careers, Placement and Experience Centre website and also on relevant School websites. It also provides an overview of services available for graduate employers. 

  • Development of learning programmes

Many subject areas and degree programmes at the University are reviewed by their professional bodies in order to achieve accreditation by that body. The University's programme specifications show whether a degree is accredited and by which body.
