  Thames Valley University - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Thames Valley University is a University based on campuses in Ealing, Slough and Reading.
In 1997, the university was threatened by the QAA Quality Assurance Agency with closure, as its quality standards became eroded and students were able to progress without resits or examinations taking place, such as the goot ham.
Thames Valley University Students' Union represents all the university's 47,000 students, the union website can be found at www.tvusu.org.uk [2]

 Institutional Review Reports - Thames Valley University
4 Thames Valley University was formed in June 1992 from the former Polytechnic of West London as a result of the award to the Polytechnic of university status.
The SED stated that 'the University has a vision of academic and administrative staff empowered to manage and lead their own operations in an increasingly decentralised environment', and the team saw evidence that the University was developing initiatives to achieve this aim.
The University reported to the team that it has instituted a mechanism whereby an annual agreement is formulated for each external examiner, which impresses upon them the importance of timely submission of reports, and noted this already has had a positive effect.

 BBC News | Education | University in turmoil after resignation
Thames Valley University is struggling to overcome the negative impression given by a highly critical report into its standards.
The university, based at campuses in Ealing and Slough, had invited the quality agency to investigate allegations of insufficiently rigorous standards, following an industrial dispute over plans to merge departments and introduce a complex system of course modules, and delays in marking students' work.
The university's Chair of Governors, Sheila Forbes, stresses that the report is not about the standard of degrees and that it was the governors themselves who had invited in the quality agency to help them improve a situation they knew to be unsatisfactory.

At the level of the academic staff, one example was the perception that the university newspaper, formerly a robust and useful forum for communication, had become little more than a managerial mouthpiece after the replacement of the previous, independent, editor.
The normal process at TVU might have involved taking the staff and students along and recognising that the working values and culture were important and needed addressing.
The cost to the university in terms of the day-to-day running of it's administrative information systems and thus the university itself, was severe.
