Quality Assurance Agency

Quality Assurance Agency

The quality of our teaching has been independently assured by the UK Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), who publish the UK Quality Code. We’ve been awarded the QAA Quality Mark for meeting or exceeding UK expectations for quality and standards in our QAA review.

Our last institutional audit in 2010 found that confidence can reasonably be placed in the soundness of our University’s present and likely future management of

  • the academic standards of the awards that we offer; and
  • the quality of the learning opportunities available to students.

In 2016, an Educational Oversight visit to the University concluded that we had made commendable progress with implementing the action plan from the 2010 audit, and that we had appropriately aligned our academic related policies and procedures to the relevant chapters of the UK Quality Code.

The full reports are available from the QAA website.
