The updated Quality Management Handbook (QMH) was published in October 2012 following consultation with Faculties and through University committees. There were no significant operational changes but a number of updates to current guidance, e.g. the need to notify external examiners’ names, positions and home institutions to students, as well as enhancements to our annual monitoring and periodic review processes. The complete QMH can be downloaded from the AQDU’s homepage, at
