Quality Assurance and Feedback

Policies and procedures around quality assurance and a space to provide feedback on best practice.

Our responsibilities within the University framework and the obligations we have as a medical school are comprehensive and wide-ranging. We have a series of processes that are part of the University’s obligatory compliance with requirements set out by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) -  the public body charged with implementing UK Government policy concerning standards in higher education.

These processes subject all courses and programmes at the University to continuous cycles of internal and external review, including the three primary features of which are:

  • Gathering and analysing student feedback on the quality of courses and programmes from their perspective.
  • Peer review and evaluation of teaching, course and programme quality, including external comment.
  • Enhancing teaching methods, courses, and programmes in the light of student comment, peer review and/or changing guidelines 'from the centre' (the College, Senate, QAA or SCQF).

We take these responsibilities very seriously and value feedback from all relevant stakeholders. This feedback is used to improve standards and performance and initiiate new practices and methods to ensure the best possible experience for staff and students.
