Educational and Student Policy


Various types of review involving teaching institutions operate in the University of Cambridge:

  • Learning and Teaching Reviews (LTR): this is the default review for teaching institutions, and is concerned only with those activities. Teaching institutions can expect to be reviewed approximately every six years.
  • Programme Reviews: learning and teaching reviews may also be conducted at programme level for large interdisciplinary courses.
  • Full Reviews: this is an in-depth review of all the institution's activities, including learning, teaching, research and resources. It may be initiated as a result of a LTR, or may be requested by the institution, School or General Board. Full Reviews take place only in exceptional circumstances.
  • Other Reviews: occasionally Review Committees may be convened to investigate certain areas of provision or strategic interests.

This guidance concentrates on Learning and Teaching Reviews.
