Individual modules may be approved by Faculty Boards of Studies.

Otherwise formal Validations are conducted for all new provision (except that submitted to the Work-Based and Integrative Studies Approval Panel or, exceptionally, to a Standing Approval Panel).

All taught programmes are subject to Continuous Monitoring and Enhancement, and all postgraduate research provision is subject to annual monitoring.  The reports arising from each of these processes are considered at the relevant Faculty Board of Studies.  Academic Quality and Enhancement Committee exercises institutional oversight of the Continuous Monitoring and Enhancement process; institutional oversight of the PGR Annual Monitoring process is exercised by Postgraduate sub-Committee. Departments are subject to Periodic Review every six years.

Modifications may be approved at any time by the relevant Faculty Board of Studies, but there is provision for a formal annual updating of programme specifications which serves as a check on the overall effects of progressive modification.

Each Faculty is subject to an internal Faculty Academic Audit (FAA), on a five-year cycle.
