Please note, the term "Quality Assurance Handbook" referred to in some documents refers to the UW and AQU policies, procedures and guidance found on these webpages.

The role of the Academic Quality Unit is to develop and manage the quality assurance and enhancement mechanisms of the University, including course planning and approval, periodic review and annual evaluation processes, the approval and review of partnership organisations, the appointment of and provision of information for external examiners and the servicing of Academic Board subcommittees related to quality and collaborative programmes. The Unit also aims to promote staff understanding of associated ideology, procedures, processes and systems, including providing support and guidance related to collaborative provision and information and training related to quality assurance and enhancement activities.

If you aren't sure where to find the templates or guidance you need, please contact AQU for advice.
