Learning and Teaching Handbook

Learning and Teaching Handbook


The Learning and Teaching Handbook is the collation of existing University guidance on Undergraduate and Taught Postgraduate teaching and learning matters falling within the remit of the University's Education Committee. This includes the admission of students, the monitoring of student progress, curriculum development, programme review and monitoring, student feedback, examinations and assessment, and the assessment of the quality of education.

The material of necessity relates to a wide range of different types of programmes and the use of the term "Undergraduate" in many instances includes all programmes offered at Undergraduate level be they Certificate, Diplomas or Degrees.

You can view information on the changes to the Handbook in the section 'Information on the Updates to the Handbook' which can be located in the left hand navigation column.
