From time to time, we review each of our programmes to ensure that they are relevant, up to date, adequately resourced and continue to meet the needs of students and employers.

Programmes are usually reviewed once every five years. Reviews are carried out by an independent panel of academic and professional peers. The panels include experts from other universities, professional bodies and employer groups where relevant. Our panels also include a student panel member from other programmes.

The evidence base for a periodic review includes:

  • internal quality assurance reports

  • feedback from students gathered through surveys and staff-student meetings

  • student progression and achievement data

  • employment patterns for graduates

  • external examiners’ reports

  • reports from external regulators and professional bodies where these reports exist.

Review panels also meet the team delivering the programme and a selection of current students as part of their work.

Published reports

Review panels publish a report of their findings. Programme teams are also required to respond formally to the review reports. As part of our commitment to openness and transparency, these reports and the responses to them are publicly available.

Reports of reviews that have taken place since 2015-present are published below. Reports from previous years are available on request.
