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 addresses the ways in which higher education providers enable students to develop and achieve their academic, personal and professional potential.
A consultation report which summarises the feedback given in the consultation for this Chapter has been published. A summary of the consultation events for Chapter B4 is also available.
Part A: Setting and maintaining academic standards
Part B: Assuring and enhancing academic quality
