Periodic Review

Periodic Review (PR) is the process by which Schools undertake a broad review of all their programmes, evaluate their strategic direction and reflect upon the experiences of their students. It takes place every five years and is an opportunity for broad thinking about the student experience as well as a point at which Schools, in the context of College plans, review the continuing standards, validity and relevance of their programmes. Supported by a Review Team and with input from students, staff and external peers, Periodic Review captures a moment-in-time image of a School and is also an enabling process which will help Schools develop their provision and set their direction for the future.

On this page you can find further information about the process and the documentation necessary to complete a review. For further information please contact the Officers in Registry and Academic Services listed at the bottom of the page.
