In 2011, we undertook a review of how academic standards of UK higher education awards delivered in Singapore are being maintained. We have published individual reports for the 10 institutions that were audited. In addition, we have published case studies on particular aspects of nine institutions' partnerships.


Overview report


The overview report gives background information about higher education in Singapore at the time of the audit, in order to provide a better understanding of the context in which the various collaborative arrangements are operating. It also provides analysis of the activity of UK universities based on survey results obtained before the audit.
