External, discipline-led academic peer review in collaboration with Innovative Research Universities

The Academic Calibration Process (ACP) is a process of external, discipline-led academic peer review that is undertaken in collaboration with other Innovative Research Universities (IRU). The process aims to:

  • demonstrate the appropriateness of the standards of learning outcomes and grades awarded in IRU universities
  • maintain and improve the academic standards of IRU
  • enable comparisons of learning outcomes in similar courses across IRU
  • promote discussion on good practice in learning and teaching across IRU .

What are the benefits?

Offers the opportunity to engage in a collegial and constructive process that can improve learning and teaching quality.
