Academic Standards

Detailed principles, governing the operation of Academic Standards, have been developed to provide greater clarity around how they should be interpreted, applied and updated.

An exercise will be undertaken this academic year to update the Standards. These will then be reviewed triennially thereafter. Each School will be provided with HESA-derived RG8 data, by discipline, to inform the updating of Standards. The revised Standards will be applied from 2018-19.
