The Academic Office is responsible for the development and management of the University’s academic regulatory framework, quality assurance and enhancement and academic experience procedures (e.g. surveys).

The office also oversees the student-facing framework (both academic and non-academic student cases) and learning and teaching through the Nexus Framework.  It also provides support for the principal academic committees of the University that relate directly to its remit. The office has its main base on the Carmarthen campus but has an active presence on all of the University’s main campuses. The Doctoral College forms part of the Academic Office.
