Timeline and guidance, as well as recent copies of our annual quality report to the College.
We set internal deadlines for the completion of course and programme and evaluations in order to produce an annual assessment of learning, teaching and research supervision activity in the form of the School Quality Assurance Reports.
Each subject area collates quality information on the courses and programmes offered in the previous academic year in October, producing a subject-specific annual report which includes relevant statistics.
By the end of November, our Quality Director drafts the School Quality Assurance and Enhancement (QAE) Report which is then circulated to staff and students for consultation in December and January. The final School report is submitted to the College Quality Assurance Director at the start of February.
Our report is formally peer-reviewed at College level in April with a written review response provided in May, listing commendations and recommendations. These feed into our ongoing quality assurance processes, and are formally responded to in the subsequent School annual report.
The annual School quality report includes an internal review of our quality assurance and enhancement (QAE) processes.
This internal review is done by a member of the College QAE Committee who is usually a Director of QAE from one of the other schools in the College of Humanities and Social Science.
Our annual QAE report is then reviewed by the College.
Our annual QAE reports to the College from the last five years are available to download.
Guidance on content for the annual School quality report to College is also available from the College of Humanities and Social Science website.
