The quality management systems at the University are underpinned by the following general principles:
Quality Assurance refers to the processes for the monitoring and evaluation of learning and teaching to safeguard the academic standards of the University’s awards and to ensure the ongoing quality of the student learning experience (UK Quality Assurance Agency definition 2018).
The University uses the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) definition of quality enhancement as ‘using evidence to plan, implement and evaluate deliberate steps intended to improve the student learning experience’. Enhancement may involve continuous improvement and/or more significant step-changes in policy and practice to improve the student learning experience and can be whole institutional change or innovation at programme or departmental level.
