Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA)

QAA Review Graphic thumbnailIn October 2015 we underwent a Higher Education Review by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) and we have received the QAA’s final report. The report is available in full on the QAA’s website.

We have received the following judgements from the QAA:

  • The maintenance of the academic standards of awards offered on behalf of degree-awarding bodies and/or other awarding organisations meets UK expectations.
  • The quality of student learning opportunities meets UK expectations.
  • The quality of the information about learning opportunities meets UK expectations.
  • The enhancement of student learning opportunities is commended.

Good Practice

The QAA highlighted the following features of good practice:

  • The clear strategy and extensive support for improving teaching and learning.
  • The wide range of effective support mechanisms that enable students to develop their academic and personal potential.
  • The strong strategic approach to enhancing the quality of learning opportunities, which is embedded in the organisation structures and processes.
  • The strong governance framework.
  • The effective and full integration of the annual monitoring process into corporate governance and the annual resource planning cycle.

Top 12.8% for enhancement

We are delighted to have been commended for the enhancement of our students’ learning opportunities. This commendation recognises not only our commitment, but our success, in continuously improving the student experience.

As at 21 January 2016, 164 institutions had undergone a QAA Higher Education Review and had their report published on the QAA website. Out of these 164 institutions, only 21 (12.8%) have been commended for the enhancement of their students’ learning opportunities. We are one of these 21, which places us in the top 12.8% of institutions with regards to enhancement.
