Terms of reference

The Academic Policy and Regulations Committee is responsible, on behalf of the Senatus, for the University's framework of academic policy and regulation, apart from those aspects which are primarily parts of the Quality Assurance Framework.

The Committee is also the forum which oversees the development, maintenance and implementation of an academic regulatory framework which effectively supports and underpins the University's educational activities.

The Committee was created following a review of academic governance activities which took place during 2008/09 and formally started its work on 1 September 2009 as the Curriculum and Student Progression Committee. From 2019/20, the Committee was re-named the Academic Policy and Regulations Committee.
