Spot-check Institutional Reviews of Existing Programs
All approved programs are expected to undergo an external review after one or two cohorts have graduated. This helps to ensure that the program is operating as intended and that any issues can be addressed early on. The review would normally be folded into the university’s ongoing efforts under its quality assurance framework.
The Commission launched a survey to confirm that universities are indeed conducting such reviews. This survey operates on a three-year cycle; the next cycle of data collection will occur in 2016.
