Education Quality and Policy Office


The institution is expected to make a written submission to address the terms of reference. The submission should strike an appropriate balance between description and evaluation and include: an evaluation of the institution within the national and international contexts, an indication of how the institution sees itself and its activities developing within the foreseeable future, and how it anticipates implementing such developments.

The Committee should assure itself that enough attention is given to postgraduate issues: these are now a particular focus of external quality assurance exercises, and are of particular interest to the General Board and the Board of Graduate Studies.

For Learning and Teaching Reviews most of the evidence should relate to learning and teaching issues, although some contextual information about research, resources and administration may be necessary for the Review Committee to consider aspects of these activities which impinge on teaching. The review process is not intended to be paper intensive but some information is essential for the Review Committee to consider.
