Annual Programme Review

Annual Programme Review (APR) is central to QMUL’s assurance of the academic standards of its provision, with the aim of enhancing the student learning experience at its core.  APR is a continuous process of reflection and action planning which is owned by those responsible for programme delivery.

For 2018/19, a new process has been approved which requires schools and institutes to take a risk-based approach to the review. Guidance detailing the changes as well as the revised template can be found below:

All schools and institutes should submit their APR document for review by 30 November 2018

Student Experience Action Plans (SEAP) and Taught Programmes Action Plan (TPAP)

The revised process incorporates the tools that a school/institute is using for its ongoing programme monitoring. This may be either a Student Experience Action Plan or a Taught Programmes Action Plan. Schools/institutes can decide which one is most appropriate for its own purposes. If a SEAP is in use it is not necessary to have a TPAP and vice versa.

If the school/institute is continuing to use TPAP, please check that the correct staff have access in addition to the course representatives in the department. If you need to add or remove access to the TPAP please contact Emma Rabin. The guidance for updating the TPAP can be found below:
