Bath University's governing body has been meeting today, 24 October, to discuss the running of the university.
It comes amid criticism of the salary paid to the Vice Chancellor.
Dame Glynis Breakwell, who has been at the university for 16 years, earns £450,000 a year and also received a £30,000 interest-free loan to buy a car.
A spokesperson says the Council of the University of Bath has agreed on a number of measures to "enhance its governance practice".
The council said the first step would be an "independent and rigorous Effectiveness Review of Council" which will be done by a consultant "selected according to procurement frameworks":
The council also agreed that the Vice-Chancellor should no longer be a member of the Remuneration Committee.
