Institutional Quality Review
As a recognised college of UCD, the management of the Institute’s education programmes is subject to the process and quality assurance requirements set out in UCD’s academic regulations. The governance and management of our education programmes is consistent with the processes and quality assurance requirements set out in UCD academic regulations. In 2018, the University undertook a periodic institutional review. The Institutional Quality Review Report for UCD Recognised College, the Institute of Banking can be read here.
Joint UCD-Institute of Banking Board
To assist in the maintenance of the highest academic standards, the academic activities of the Institute of Banking are overseen by a joint UCD-Institute Board, which is comprised of representatives from UCD and the Institute. The Board has responsibility for all academic matters relating to programmes (quality, teaching and learning, student welfare and progression) offered by the Institute. The Board meets at least twice per semester with various sub-committees of the Board meeting more frequently. The University and the Institute also appoint three representatives each to a Strategic Management Committee. Some of the Institute’s short programmes, executive education programmes and seminars are not part of this framework.
