Good Practice Discussions encourage the sharing of practice related to an annual institutional theme.

The discussions involve students as well as Departments, the School and Faculties. They aim to identify areas for local, as well as institutional, action.

Good Practice Discussions are designed to complement the University’s internal review and feedback mechanisms at unit and programme level.
