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.

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.

You can access the pages of the Handbook via the breadcrumb trail above, or via the buttons below.


More information about the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) and the report from the most recent QAA review can be found here.
