Higher education reference points
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 of the Quality Code takes as its starting point the principle that formal and effective procedures should exist in all institutions for the design, approval, monitoring and review of programmes of study.
