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.


The Learning and Teaching Review process is currently under review (as at July 2019). Information regarding the process will be added following the review.
