The University of Southampton
Quality Handbook

Welcome to the University of Southampton’s Quality Handbook, which draws together in a single location the policies and processes which constitute the University’s Quality, Monitoring and Enhancement Framework.  It is primarily a source of information for staff, who can find information, guidance and policies on a wider range of information relating to educational governance at the University, but students too may find relevant information to their programmes and courses of study within this website.

Temporary amendments to the University’s Quality, Monitoring and Enhancement Framework have been incorporated into the Quality Handbook, however historical decision, policies and process can be located in the Extraordinary Quality Handbook.

The Common Framework for Online Education draws from a series of principles, design elements and lenses whose purpose is to enable all programmes to respond to the current context with confidence and competence.

The Quality Handbook is maintained by the University’s Quality, Standards and Accreditation Team on behalf of the University’s Academic Quality and Standards Committee.
