Overview of Quality Assurance and

Quality Enhancement at the University

The University provides clear definitions and principles of quality assurance (QA) and quality enhancement (QE) for dissemination among staff. The University’s QA and QE processes and guidelines are underpinned by the following three principles:

  • Clear and streamlined decision-making and implementation structures linking the department, faculty and University levels, with key post-holders having unambiguous and distinctive responsibilities for QA and QE.
  • Clear lines of communication within and among the department, faculty and University levels.
  • Clearly defined responsibilities and lines of accountability for all staff in relation to QA and QE.

All QA and QE policies and procedures are documented as a standard reference for all staff of the University (details are set out in the “Staff Handbook on Programme Quality Assurance”). The University’s Learning and Teaching Quality Committee regularly reviews these policies and procedures to ensure that they are up-to-date and relevant to the development of the University.
