Reviews Information

The University regularly reviews its programs and school functions to ensure students are offered a distinctive high quality education. Review panels ordinarily comprise a senior discipline academic from another institution, a senior academic from the University of Adelaide, from a discipline other than the one being reviewed, 2 student members, and occasionally, a senior industry leader. Panel members speak to a range of stakeholders (including students and alumni) to inform potential program improvements for current and future student cohorts.

Student Perspectives

Thirty minute sessions are scheduled for confidential, informal student group discussions. No specific preparation is required. Topics may relate to areas of interest arising from the Terms of Reference and material gathered. Student participant names are not released in the report and student details are redacted from any written submissions provided. Some examples of the questions students may be asked are included in the following document ‘Sample Review Panel Questions’.

All students who participate receive a formal letter of acknowledgement for their valuable contribution to University governance.
