Quality Assurance Committees
Quality assurance is an essential part of maintaining good practice across the College, as well as being a basic requirement of HEFCE and Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) guidelines. The College has developed quality assurance and enhancement policies and procedures to support the achievement of its educational strategic intents.
The Vice-Provost (Education) is a member of Senate and chairs the Learning and Teaching Committee (LTC), which oversees the development and implementation of the College’s Learning and Teaching Strategy, ensuring alignment with College Strategy.
The Academic Registrar chairs the Quality Assurance and Enhancement Committee (QAEC) which develops and advises the Senate on the implementation of College policies and procedures relating to quality assurance, enhancement and internal audit of quality.
The Director of the Graduate School chairs the Postgraduate Research Quality Committee (PRQC) which advises the Senate on all matters relating to the development of postgraduate education and research as regards PhD, MPhil, EngD and MD(Res) degrees, including any impact on MRes degrees, including joint and collaborative programmes.
The Programmes Committee is a sub-committee of the Quality Assurance and Enhancement Committee (QAEC). It considers proposals for new and major modifications to undergraduate and Master’s level taught programmes of study. The Committee is also responsible for making recommendations to QAEC for changes to the College’s academic and examination regulations related to taught programmes.
More information about the committee structure can be found on the College's Academic Governance webpages.
