QAA publishes Viewpoint on alternative providers

Date 15/12/2016

​QAA has provided quality assurance of alternative providers of higher education since 2012, on behalf of the Home Office and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (now the Department for Education). In this latest paper in the QAA Viewpoint series, we discuss some of the major characteristics of alternative providers, and examine themes emerging from the outcomes of QAA's reviews of alternative providers during the period 2013-15.

QAA Viewpoint is an occasional series of papers, in which we examine different topics and issues in higher education.
