The Quality Code is the definitive reference point for all those involved in delivering higher education which leads to an award from or is validated by a UK higher education provider. It makes clear what institutions are required to do, what they can expect of each other, and what the general public can expect of all higher education providers. These Expectations express key matters of principle that the higher education community has identified as important for the assurance of quality and academic standards.
This Chapter comprises the existing qualifications frameworks, namely:
- The framework for higher education qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (FHEQ)
- The framework for qualifications of higher education institutions in Scotland (FQHEIS).
