The Quality, Standards and Policy Unit exists to facilitate quality management throughout the university. Its services are underpinned by the university’s commitment to the following objectives:
The university’s approach to quality management is underpinned by a commitment to continuous improvement. The model, when applied to any University activity, supports a systematic and continuous cycle of improvement. It is applied using a range of structured review and quality management activities such as Course Performance Report process and course accreditation.
Manage the assurance processes to monitor compliance with the Higher Education Standards Framework and the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Ensure continued alignment with the requirements of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), monitor changes to standards and communicate changes within the business and proactively assist and support University staff to achieve compliance with standards.
The University undertakes Course Performance Reports (CPRs) and Division Academic Program Reports (DAPRs) as part of its commitment to the philosophy of quality enhancement that moves beyond compliance and attaining standards (assurance) to participative and critical self evaluation and continuous improvement.
The Innovative Research Universities (IRU) calibration project is a quality management process of external, discipline-led, academic peer review of final year undergraduate student outcomes. It concentrates on benchmarking for comparing grades awarded.
