Annual review and evaluation

We carry out an annual review and evaluation of our corporate and academic governance arrangements to ensure there is compliance with the CUC ‘The Higher Education Code of Governance’[5] (on an “apply or explain” basis), and with the Office for Students Regulatory Framework, Notices and Advice[6].

We also carry out an annual review of the Articles and the Corporate and Academic Governance Framework to ensure any recommendations made through the annual governance review are addressed, and also to ensure they remain fit-for-purpose.  Any amendments made to the Articles or the Corporate and Academic Governance Framework will follow the procedures set out in Regulations 140 and 147-148 of the Articles.

We carry out an external review and evaluation of our corporate and academic governance arrangements every three years.
