Academic Governance

Share this page

From 2016 governing bodies have been required to provide annual assurance about academic quality processes within their institutions. Many governing bodies have looked to their audit committees in turn for assurance. We have helped by completing several high level, and some more detailed reviews, to allow audit committees and governing bodies provide appropriate assurances.

We see this as an increasingly important area. The UK Quality Code remains the globally recognised benchmark for good academic governance. Uniac is sufficiently experienced, and well placed, to provide governing bodies with independent assurance about institutional compliance. We offer both desk based reviews as well as more comprehensive audits of compliance with individual aspects of the UK Code.
