Case study - University of Exeter: Strategic analysis of quality processes


QAA worked with the University of Exeter to review the University’s programme and module approval and amendment processes. The project resulted in a report that provided several recommendations for change and development, including the streamlining and simplification of business and academic approval processes, and the standardisation of data. The University of Exeter found the process to be a positive and beneficial experience, working with our higher education experts to formulate and create a roadmap for future development.
