Institutional Approval is the initial approval of potential partner organisations by the University for the conduct of Higher Education courses leading to an award of the University of East Anglia. It is distinct from the validation of specific courses. The Institutional Approval and Review processes are organised in accordance with the QAA UK Quality Code, which requires that the University assures itself of the suitability of any potential partner through undertaking the appropriate due diligence procedures.
The Learning and Teaching Committee (LTC) is responsible for making recommendations to Senate regarding the establishment of new collaborative partnerships.
Institutional review is the process by which partner institutions are reviewed at institutional level, usually every five years, to ensure that they remain suitable for the conduct of Higher Education courses leading to an award of the University of East Anglia. The process is distinct from the revalidation of specific courses.
