Periodic review


core definition

Periodic review is the evaluation of an institution or its programmes on a regular cycle.


explanatory context

Periodic reviews of programmes in the UK, for eample, are usually every five years and of institutions in the USA every ten years.


analytical review

The UK Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) (2011) defines periodic review as:

A review of one or more programmes of study, undertaken periodically (typically once every five years), using nationally agreed reference points, to confirm that the programmes are of an appropriate academic standard and quality. The process typically involves experts from other institutions.

More recently, QAA (undated) states:

Periodic review: An internal review of one or more programmes of study, undertaken by institutions periodically (typically once every five years), using nationally agreed reference points, to confirm that the programmes are of an appropriate academic standard and quality. The process typically involves experts from other higher education providers.


Grimsby Institute Group (2011, p. 2) state that:

'periodic review’ is used to describe the principles and processes through which the Institute will monitor and take a broader review of its programmes in an agreed 5 year cycle.


The University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST, 2001), referring to its processes, states:

Periodic Review: a review of each department is normally undertaken every five to six years by the Educational Standards Committee (on quality assurance procedures), and the Teaching and Learning Committee (revalidation of programmes).
