Committees

The Academic Office contributes to the formulation and development of the University's academic policy through its support of the Academic Standards and Quality Enhancement Committee (ASQEC) of Senate.  (In 2016/17 it was serviced by Quality Management and Audit Unit (now Quality Enhancement.)

The ASQEC currently has two sub-committees, the Collaborative Partnerships Forum, which is supported by Quality Enhancement.  The Academic Office services the Academic Planning Advisory Group which advises on whether new course proposals should proceed to planning and evaluation.

The Learning and Teaching Committee was previously supported by the Academic Office and is now supported by the Quality Enhancement.  Minutes and papers from meetings up to June 2017.

For minutes of the former Course Approval Sub-Committee please contact the Academic Office.

The ASQEC and its sub-committees are required to follow a number of Standing Orders and Notes of Administrative Practice adopted by Senate.

These are set out in this document which also incorporates other Standing Orders which the former Learning and Teaching Committee adopted.
