Quality Assurance Structure and Responsibilities

The QA Structure makes it clear that everyone has a role to play in ensuring that our students receive a high-quality education. It shows the quality related roles and responsibilities that all of the members of the BUV community are expected to carry out. This begins with our faculty, staff, and students, and ends with our highest level of University governance.

Student-centred Learning, Teaching, and Assessment Policy

The SCLTA policy sets out the beliefs that BUV have about what a student-centred approach to learning, teaching, and assessment means. For BUV, this has three key points: 1. Recognising that our students are independent learners and must take responsibility for shaping their own learning paths. 2. The importance of using a wide range of methods and approaches to learning and teaching, which include the effective use of technologies. 3. Recognising the value of student involvement in how we make decisions as a University.
