The University's mission is "to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence". This reflects one of its core values, which is to provide high quality provision across all subjects offered. The University's quality assurance procedures provide a framework within which its institutions can examine and enhance their teaching activities to ensure that they achieve this aspiration of excellence.
The University is accountable for the quality and standards of its provision and is required to participate in the activities of bodies such as the Quality Assurance Directorate (QAD) and various Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies. While consideration is given to the needs of such bodies, it is the General Board's policy that the University's quality assurance procedures should be appropriate primarily for its teaching, learning and assessment activities, rather than being driven by external quality regimes.
The University's procedures for assuring quality in teaching, learning and assessment are designed to reflect:
The General Board's Learning and Teaching Strategy.
Achieving distinction by assurance and enhancement of quality teaching and research in line with international standards.
