Faculty of Biology


The Faculty Board of Biology have approved the quality assurance statements and reporting arrangements below. These have been developed by the Biological Sciences Committee (for biological subjects in the Natural Sciences Tripos) and the M&VST Part I Committee (for Part IA and IB Med ST and Vet ST), in consultation with the Education Section of the General Board. Outline responsibilities for the Course Organiser, and Chairman and Secretary of the Course Management Committee are included. A key element of the quality assurance arrangements is that individual Course Management Committees communicate with the teaching committees of all those departments involved in delivery of the course as well as with the Biological Sciences Committee or MVST Part I Committee as appropriate.
