Academic Program

STANDARD 4 - ACADEMIC PROGRAM

The achievement and maintenance of quality academic programs is the primary responsibility of any institution of higher education. As conditions and needs change frequently, the institution should review and evaluate its curriculum on a regular basis in response to the local context and the changing labor market. Planning for new academic programs should be based on a regular assessment of its mission and goals, students’ needs and its relevance to national development goals. The curriculum must clearly define the expected learning outcomes and students’ competencies. Program learning outcomes are appropriate to the level of qualifications awarded and are consistent with the National Qualifications Framework. The institution shall have appropriate strategies for the delivery of the academic programs, student assessment and record keeping for students. They are central to sustaining the quality of the programs.
