The quality of all programmes is monitored on an ongoing basis. Internal Programme Boards, which include student members, report annually to WIT Academic Council. External Examiners validate the quality of all assessment activity and work with staff on the ongoing development of programmes.
Annual Reporting is primarily managed and administered by the School Offices, and supported at the central administration by the Academic Affairs section of the Registry – contact: Ms. Inna Kuzmenko, [email protected], ext. 2042.

The Institutional Self Evaluation Report (ISER) is an all-Institute report covering the quality assurance of every part of the WIT organisation. The report and the supplemental report were submitted for external expert panel review, coordinated by Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI).

The Annual Institutional Quality Assurance Report (AIQR) is an annual report about internal quality assurance that WIT provides to the national academic quality regulatory agency - Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI). The AIQR has been developed with reference to the ENQA (the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education) European Standards and Guidelines, upon which QQI's Core Statutory Quality Assurance Guidelines are based.

WIT’s AIQR documents are:

PDF AIQR Part 1 15/16

PDF AIQR Part 2 15/16

PDF AIQR 2016-17

PDF AIQR 2017-18

PDF AIQR 2018-19
