The Quality Code is the definitive reference point for all those involved in delivering higher education which leads to an award from or is validated by a UK higher education provider. It makes clear what institutions are required to do, what they can expect of each other, and what the general public can expect of all higher education providers.
This Chapter discusses the mechanisms which higher education providers use to reflect on a programme once it is running, and to determine how it can be improved. This Chapter also addresses matters relating to closure of existing programmes.
A consultation report which summarises the feedback given in the consultation for this Chapter has been published. A summary of the consultation events for Chapter B8 is also available.
Part A: Setting and maintaining academic standards
Part B: Assuring and enhancing academic quality
