Purpose:

This Code of Practice sets out the University’s requirements for annual and periodic developmental review. Its purpose is to ensure that;

  • the University has in place annual and periodic processes to monitor the quality and standards of the programmes and awards it offers, ensuring their continued currency and the relevance of learning opportunities, and to identify areas for development and the dissemination of good practice
  • the annual developmental review process provides an opportunity for a regular review of the ongoing learning and teaching provision at departmental level
  • the periodic developmental review process provides an opportunity for the review of the management and standards of academic provision across a department and identification of areas for development and examples of good practice
  • the University meets the requirements of Chapter B8 of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education.
