2.5 Submission of New Program Proposal to the Quality Assurance Secretariat

After completion of any other requirements of its IQAP, the university will submit the Proposal, together with all required reports and documents[1], to the Quality Assurance Secretariat. The submission template will require information on whether or not the proposed program will be a cost-recovery program. The same standards and protocols apply regardless of the source of funding. The submission will further include a brief commentary on the two external reviewers selected to review the proposed program in regard to their qualifications in the following areas:

  • Sufficient expertise in content and program delivery;
  • Appropriate connections to industry (where appropriate); and
  • Expertise in teaching and learning.


[1] Minimally, this must include the Proposal, the External Reviewers’ Report, and the internal responses, including date of university governance approval.
