Academic Policy and Regulations

The Academic Policy and Regulations (APR) team within Student Learning & Academic Registry is responsible for academic policy, committee governance and regulatory functions across the University.

The team leads on the University's engagement with agencies such as the Office for Students (OfS) on B Conditions of Registration, Pearson (for Higher National provision) and the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), with a focus on maintaining and enhancing academic quality and standards. The department manages external assessments such as the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and engages with the OfS Designated Quality Body.

APR facilitates effective and timely debate and agreement on academic quality, policy, regulation and procedure via the Academic Board Committee structure (at University and School-level). This is informed by sector research and intelligence and the University's strategic plan, which in turn supports the delivery of the student learning experience on and off campus.

The team manages the External Examining processes at an Institutional level, convening Central Induction Events for newly appointed External Examiners. APR maintains oversight of the currency of academic quality policies, regulations and procedures, including the University's Assessment Regulations for Taught provision, Recognition of Prior Learning Policy (RPL), and the Credit Accumulation & Modular Scheme (CAMS).
