About the consultation

The UK Standing Committee for Quality Assessment (UKSCQA) is consulting on a new approach to the Expectations of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education. The consultation se​eks to ensure that the Quality Code remains the cornerstone for quality in UK higher education, that it protects the public and student interest, and that it maintains the UK’s world-leading reputation for quality in higher education.

The consultation proposes reform from the highest level, starting with new, streamlined sector expectations. It is designed to involve the sector at every stage, initially in the development of these expectations then in the longer term development of the code.
