Academic unit and disciplinary area reviews

Academic units with responsibilities for teaching and research are reviewed by an external panel within a 10-year cycle.

Six to eight reviews are carried out each year. These reviews are chaired by a senior member of the academic staff of the University and have a tight focus on curriculum, teaching and research.
