Academic Quality Handbook

Within the University’s quality assurance framework the Academic Quality Handbook defines and provides detailed operational guidance on the University’s quality assurance procedures.
On this page

The three main components include:

  • Course/Programme Validation – a process whereby all new courses/programmes are subject to formal consideration and approval prior to implementation
  • Annual Appraisal – a process whereby the delivery of all courses/programmes and output standards achieved are monitored
  • Institution-Led Subject Review – a process conducted on a 5/6 yearly basis which consists of the critical review of the subject and its development


Our short guide to Academic Quality Procedures has been designed to provide an outline of the University's academic quality assurance procedures, to enable the reader to decide what procedure is appropriate for what purpose, and to guide the reader to the most appropriate source for further information.
