Academic Standards and Quality

Quality Assurance, Enhancement and Academic Development

We value the highest academic and professional standards and aim to be internationally recognised for the quality of teaching, learning facilities and educational experience offered to students.

Our Education Strategy places students at the centre, engaging them in collaborative learning in a supportive and well-resourced academic environment. We aim to enhance the quality of student learning through investment in the learning environment and our staff.

The teaching quality management structure, including a quality framework, supports this and is designed to ensure that the continuous improvement of the student experience is at the core of quality assurance and enhancement activity, and that staff take personal responsibility for the quality of their contribution towards this.

Our processes, which include course and module approval, student feedback, external examiners, annual review of courses and periodic review, are designed to interconnect to create an approach which is rigorous and effective.
