Annual Quality & Enhancement Review

  • is an essential element of the University’s Quality Assurance and Quality Enhancement processes.
  • allows Schools, Colleges and the University to ensure that the courses and programmes we deliver meet the expectations of staff and students
  • continually look for opportunities to develop and enhance provision.
  • closing the feedback loop and ensuring that actions and outcomes are reported to colleagues and students.

The management of Annual Quality & Enhancement Review is devolved to Colleges and is managed locally by School and College Quality & Enhancement Officers.

The Process

The process which is in place for the review of learning and teaching during 2022-23 is set out in the Timescales document below.

Good Practice

The beest practice identified in the Reports are shared with Academic & Digital Development.
