Academic Development and Quality Enhancement

Periodic Review

 School Periodic Reviews cover all taught and research courses of study offered to undergraduate and postgraduate students in a School, including courses delivered by an external partner.

The main aims of the School Periodic Review are to:

  • provide an opportunity for the institution to review the quality and standards of a School’s educational provision over time, in collaboration with external contributors and members of the wider University community;
  • enable the University to audit the implementation of its policies and strategies for enhancing the student experience;
  • facilitating holistic consideration of a School’s portfolio, to ensure that the curriculum is aligned to both strategy and policy.
