*Review Week

 

It has been agreed that there will be an Institute-wide Review Week (to be set by the Institute) in each Semester. There is a right to seek derogation for an individual programme. The derogation case is to be presented by the relevant Programme Committee to the Head of School responsible for the programme and the College Director, who together will make the final decision. It is suggested that Programme Committees should endeavour to agree their approach to the Review Week in a timely manner, to allow decisions to be communicated to both staff and students before the start of the Semester in which a Review Week occurs.
