Internal Quality Assurance

'Quality assurance' in the context of higher education relates to two main areas. The first is how an institution manages its academic standards. The second is how it manages the quality of its students' learning opportunities.

'Quality enhancement' relates to how an institution looks to improve aspects of its provision.

The School's approach to quality assurance and enhancement is set out in the 'Strategy for Managing Academic Standards and Quality|'.
