Academic Structure

There has been a University wide consultation on academic structure for use in internal reporting which has been approved by VCEG in June 2017.

The table and report below provide a clear list of academic units at College, Discipline and Sub-discipline level which will help to provide consistency in reporting across University systems.

VCEG Organisational Structure Report

Organisational Structure for Colleges

Stakeholders and System Leads

The next steps approved by VCEG are detailed below and PPBI will be leading on these actions.

  • Agree and define the process for amending the structure to change, create or remove disciplines and sub-disciplines. We propose that this process would be led by PPBI in consultation with IT and relevant services.
  • Explore the requirements in some systems for a more granular level structure (Tier 4, Tier 5, etc) and agree the process for deciding this structure. Currently the more granular level structure varies across systems and there may be a need to bring consistency to this across the institution. Further to discussions with Finance, IT and Governance and Compliance, we propose that PPBI serves as the institutional custodian of the agreed structure.
  • Following sign-off by VCEG System leads will be asked to implement the approved academic structure noting that all management reporting will be based upon the agreed organisational units.
