safeguarding standards and improving the quality of UK higher education



​​​​​​​​​​​​Are you a student, member of a professional body, or an employer engaged in higher education in some way?

If so, you might like to get involved in the work of QAA. Use this section to find out how.

Ways to engage

  • QAA works with students to involve and empower them in shaping the student learning experience. We help higher education institutions develop tools and processes so that students become actively involved in the organisation of their own learning and student experience.
  • We also involve and empower employers to work alongside higher education students and graduates to shape the employability agenda. We help build understanding and collaboration between the higher education and business sectors.
  • We collaborate with professional, statutory and regulatory bodies (PSRBs) to share information and experience, with a view to rationalising regulation.

Our Quality Enhancement Network provides an opportunity for subscribing institutions to interact with QAA outside of audit and review.

In addition to our partnerships in the UK, we have established relationships with a number of international quality assurance agencies and higher education organisations​. Our memoranda and agreements form the foundations of these relationships.
