o criteria for the admission of students;
o the appointment and removal of internal and external examiners;
o policies and procedures for assessment and examination of the academic performance of students;
o the content of the curriculum;
o academic standards and the validation and review of courses;
o the procedures for the award of qualifications and honorary academic titles
o the procedure for the suspension or expulsion of students for academic reasons.
• for considering the development of the academic activities of the University and the resources needed to support them and advising the Vice Chancellor and Principal and the Governing Body thereon; and
• for advising on such other matters as the Governing Body or the Vice Chancellor and Principal may refer to the Academic Board.
The Academic Board may establish such committees as it considers necessary for purposes enabling it to carry out its responsibilities.
