Quality management

Administration of quality

Role of the Faculty / School

It is the function of the faculties and School of Management to manage processes relating to quality and standards within their respective departments and groups.  Boards of Studies make decisions in relation to standards on both taught and research programmes.  Faculty / School Learning, Teaching and Quality Committees make (or where necessary refer to University Learning, Teaching and Quality Committee) decisions on quality matters for taught programmes.  Faculty / School Doctoral Studies Committees make (or where necessary refer to University Doctoral Studies Committee) decisions relating to quality for research programmes.
