A strong committment to regular review of all major units and functions is a key element of UQ's quality assurance processes.
The University of Queensland is committed to achieving improvement and excellence through
- septennial reviews of schools, university centres, institutes and major generalist degrees (BA and BSc), conducted by Academic Board through its Standing Committee;
- reviews of administrative and academic service units, according to a five-yearly timetable;
- five-yearly reviews of academic programs;
- reviews every four years of school, faculty and institute centres;
- annual reporting to the Deputy Vice-Chancelor (Research) of univeristy centres and institutes, and school, faculty and institute centres;
- regular review of Academic Board and its committees; and
- a regular cycle of policy review.
External, whole-of-institution reviews are conducted on a five-yearly basis by the Australian Universities Quality Agency (AUQA).
