Annual Monitoring of Postgraduate Research Activity
2012/13 - Important Update - Annual Review and Enhancement (ARE)
As of the meeting of the Academic Standards and Quality Committee on 22nd May 2013, the processes of APRE, PGR Monitoring and NSS Action Planning have been streamlined into one process Annual Review and Enhancement (ARE).
Details about this process and the relevant guidance and proformas are available at:
This documentation is available for information only, documentation for the new ARE process operating in 2013/14 is available at http://learning.cf.ac.uk/quality/review/are/.
The process of Annual Review and Evaluation of Postgraduate Research Activity (ARE) involves the submission of a report by each School Board for consideration by a Sub-Committee of the Academic Standards and Quality Committee. The report represents the culmination of a process to which relevant staff and student groups have contributed. A proforma approach underpins the process, designed to ensure that a consistent approach is operated by Schools and by the University.
Each School is required to undertake ARE in respect of all the research degree programmes to which it admits students - PhD, MPhil, Professional Doctorate, MD, etc., - and in respect of both full-time and part-time students.
