Procedures for the annual monitoring of courses

The Procedures for the annual monitoring of courses sets out the University’s approach to monitoring the quality and standards of undergraduate courses, postgraduate taught courses and postgraduate research programmes.

The University, through its departments, divisions and central committees, undertakes monitoring of courses through a range of processes rather than a single event. These processes include the annual cycle of consideration of:

•    admissions statistics
•    examiners’ and external examiners’ reports
•    annual programme statistics
•    student feedback and evaluation
•    data on the destinations of graduates

The overall cycle of consideration is set in the Procedures and is also reflected in the Quality assurance calendar template [http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/edc/qa/qualityassuranceoverview/] and divisional quality assurance calendars.

The Procedures are available below:
