The Academic Quality Team is part of Ako: Learning & Teaching and was formed in February 2005 to oversee academic regulations, policy, programmes, processes and academic quality assurance at the University of Canterbury.

The Academic Quality Team works with many areas across UC and beyond with high schools, other universities and organisations to ensure that UC qualifications continue to reach the highest national and international standards.

For quality assurance including audits, see our Quality assurance pages.

A full list of award winners can be found on our Awards pages.
