​Quality Framework

The Quality Framework is the University’s definitive source of information on our approach to academic quality assurance and enhancement. It is the authoritative reference point for all academic quality activities University-wide and provides advice and guidance which must be followed on the application of the University’s academic regulations. More information about the Quality Framework and how it should be used, can be found in the Introduction to the Quality Framework below. The Related Resources box below contains links to key materials and resources to support the implementation of processes set out with the Quality Framework, such as links to the academic regulations.

Quality & Standards

     The Quality & Standards team work with schools, subject and programme teams and other professional services to oversee arrangements for managing academic standards and ensuring compliance.

The team leads and manages the development and consistent implementation of effective and efficient processes, procedures and activities for securing academic standards and for enhancing the quality of the student experience.

The University’s academic regulations and Quality Framework are maintained and developed by Quality & Standards to ensure compliance with sector-wide quality assurance expectations relating to taught award, credit and non-credit-bearing provision.

Further information about the team is available on the meet the team pages on the Department of Learning & Teaching Enhancement website.
