Programme reviews

Programme reviews assess and enhance the quality of established degree programmes.

The results can provide an assurance of quality for students, staff, faculties, the wider University community and external stakeholders. They also provide feedback to faculties, schools and departments to assist them in identifying and making programme improvements.

Established programmes with large enrolments and/or strategic importance are reviewed by a panel with internal and external membership within a 10-year cycle.

Other established programmes are reviewed internally or as part of external accreditation exercises. New degree programmes are assessed by Graduating Year Review.


Review reports and implementation

Programme review reports are considered by Education Committee, Senate and Council. An implementation plan is prepared by the Faculty.

A status report on progress of implementation of recommendations is submitted to Education Committee one year after consideration of the initial review report.
