Academic Board


Working for better education


Kent’s Academic board is the principal academic advisory and academic decision-making body for all our activities, courses and programs. The board ensures that academic standards are maintained, ensure quality assurance frameworks are followed and works to manage academic policy development, implementation and reviews.
The Course Advisory Committees (CACs) are sub committees of Academic Board. Our IT and Business CACs include discipline-specific academic staff, industry employers, academic peers and recent graduates to ensure our courses are current and industry relevant.
Our members include respected professors, industry leading consultants and experienced professionals.
