Higher Education Funding Council for England: Assessment of the quality of education

In the Lent Term 1997 a team of assessors, appointed by the HEFCE, visited the University to assess the quality of education provided in History of Art. Under the procedures operated by the HEFCE, at the conclusion of a subject assessment the six core aspects of provision (Curriculum Design, Content, and Organization; Teaching, Learning, and Assessment; Student Progression and Achievement; Student Support and Guidance; Learning Resources; Quality Assurance and Enhancement) are evaluated on a scale of 1 to 4 to create a graded profile. An overall judgement is derived from this, either 'quality approved' or 'unsatisfactory quality', the latter resulting from grade 1 in one or more aspects of provision.

 The final assessment report in History of Art, which has been published by the HEFCE, has now been received. The assessors approved the quality of education provided by the University and the following outstanding result was achieved:

Curriculum design, content, and organization 4
Teaching, learning, and assessment 3
Student progression and achievement 4
Student support and guidance 4
Learning resources 4
Quality assurance and enhancement 3

Copies of the assessment report are available to members of the University on request from the Education Section of the General Board, 4 Parson's Court (tel. (3)32284).
