Framework for Quality
A Framework for Quality at Trinity was approved in January 2016 and brings together the elements that form the current focus of quality assurance and enhancement. These include a seven-year cycle of quality reviews of academic and administrative/support areas, along with strategic or thematic reviews which are undertaken as required. Reviews of transnational provision will commence in 2018/19.
A schedule of quality reviews to 2023/24 is available, which outlines upcoming internal quality reviews along with the timing for the next Institutional Review. The External Examiner process at both undergraduate and postgraduate level assures the quality of the curriculum, and regular accreditation of professional courses by the associated external regulatory body dovetails with internal mechanisms for assuring the quality of our educational provision. Teaching and Learning is evaluated annually by students through mandatory undergraduate module evaluations and postgraduate taught programme evaluations, and by participation in the Irish Survey of Student Engagement (ISSE) and the International Student Barometer (ISB).
