The University of Auckland will undergo Academic Audit in 2014. All New Zealand Universities are audited by the Academic Quality Agency for New Zealand Universities. Academic Audit evaluates the effectiveness of a university’s quality assurance procedures and practices.
The audit’s scope is the entire institution, concentrating on academic activities related to teaching and learning and student support, and quality assurance processes.
The University will be audited against seven key themes:
1. Leadership and management of teaching and learning
2. Student profile: access, transition and admission processes
3. Curriculum and assessment
4. Student engagement and achievement
5. Student feedback and support
6. Teaching quality
7. Supervision of research students.
The audit is an exercise in public accountability and is therefore important for the University, students, and staff. The University is now engaged in the self-review phase of the audit, overseen by an Audit Steering Group chaired by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic). The Audit Steering Group has a student representative. A self-review document is being prepared and will be submitted to the audit panel in early 2014, with the panel’s site visit scheduled to occur in June 2014. At the time of the site visit the panel will wish to meet with students to hear their perspectives on the audit themes.
The panel’s final audit report will be made public a few months later, and will be available on the University’s website. After the audit report has been published, the University will consider the recommendations and the actions required to address them.
