University Grants Commission, having recognized the need for Quality Assurance (QA) in the Sri Lankan Universities, has taken steps to introduce QA mechanisms to the University sector.
It has a quality assurance system based on external peer review, building on universities' internal review procedures.
One such Quality review method is Subject Review (SR). It evaluates the quality of education within a department of study. It is focused on the quality of the student learning experience and on student achievement. SR is designed to evaluate the quality of both undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes.
