Degree Scheme Reviews

We expect departments to undertake a review of their programmes at least every five years, according to a schedule agreed by University Learning, Teaching and Quality Committee.   The purpose of a Degree Scheme Review (DSR) is not only to provide assurance that a programme is of an appropriate quality and standard and fit for purpose but also to consider its future development.

University Learning, Teaching and Quality Committee provides insitutional oversight of Degree Scheme Reviews and receives a summary report on the process and key outcomes every year.
