Published Research

Find out more about our published research including our six subscriber research projects in 2015-16.


​​​​​​We commission research on new and innovative topics by offering research grants to QAA subscribers.


There is an annual process for the administration of subscriber research grants. The call for expressions of interest opens in October each year, with decisions made in December. The research is then completed by the end of that academic year and published the followin​g autumn. 

We also contract external bodies to undertake specific research on our behalf. Calls for expressions of interest are published on the QAA website as appropriate (see our list of published research).
