2.4       Maintaining and improving the quality of research degree programmes

The University ensures that it continues to meet UK quality standards for research degrees and accords with national guidelines.

In addition, the Research Degrees Examination Board (RDEB) fulfils the role of assuring consistency of academic standards across all faculties, scrutinising all research degree examiners’ reports and taking account of their comments concerning the process and operation of research degree assessment.

Research students' views

The University regularly gathers feedback from research students about their experience at Bristol and uses the results to inform the development of its provision.
