The main functions of the Programme Validation Committee (PVC), which is composed of academic members of staff nominated for this purpose by the Rector, are:
- to provide quality assurance mechanisms acceptable to Senate and appropriate for internal and external audit purposes
- to ensure that academic programmes are of appropriate standard
- to ascertain the validity of the programmes on offer
- to ensure optimal use of available resources.
The PVC is assisted in its task by the Academic Programmes Quality and Resources Unit (APQRU) which also provides on-site and off-site assistance to departments and faculties, institutes, centres and schools with regard to validation procedures.
