University Of Greenwich Quality Assurance Handbook

Academic Quality Handbook

   The University’s quality assurance procedures are outlined in the University of Greenwich Quality Handbook (QH) and associated appendices. Our quality assurance and enhancement procedures adhere to the expectations of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education. The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA)’s UK Quality Code for Higher Education, commonly known as the Quality Code, sets in place requirements which all higher education providers have to meet.

The QH details the University’s principles and procedures for approving, monitoring and reviewing courses, programmes and partnerships. The forms that follow below provide the templates and guidance notes referred to in the main text.

Programmes are developed with reference to both the QAA’s subject benchmark statements and the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
