    The Frameworks for Higher Education Qualifications of UK Degree-Awarding Bodies


    Description

    ​The Frameworks for Higher Education Qualifications of UK Degree-Awarding Bodies provide important reference points for higher education providers, assisting them in setting and maintaining academic standards. The frameworks are central to the Expectation in Chapter A1: The National Level of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education that degree-awarding bodies use external UK and European reference points to secure threshold academic standards across the higher education sector.

    The framework document will become a reference point for the purpose of reviews carried out by QAA from August 2015.
