  • Student success

    The new Academic Framework aims to facilitate students' academic progression and transition through the levels of undergraduate study, attainment and employment.

    Student experience

    It's an opportunity to innovate by looking holistically at programme modules and exploring points of progression with the student experience in mind.

    The new academic curriculum supports two areas prominent in the National Students' Survey:

    • the design of assessments to benefit a diverse range of learners
    • strong course organisation and management.

    Advantages of the new Academic Framework are likely to include stronger cohort identity for students and effective course organisation with clear learning outcomes and assessment requirements.

    Teaching excellence

    The new Academic Framework is a chance to consider the clarity of learning outcomes in relation to assessment tasks which will support all students to reach their full potential.
