Quinquennial Reviews

Quinquennial Reviews - Faculty Research Committee

Every research entity will be subject to periodic reviews which will normally be on a five yearly cycle. Where practical, this may be included in a quinquennial School review, even if it means resetting the recognition cycle of the entity to coincide, but the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) must be consulted over how the Faculty Research Committee (FRC) and University Research Committee’s (URC) interests are to be represented in the review process. He/she will reserve the right to involve external experts.
