Higher Education Review: Grimsby Institute of Further and Higher Education, February 2014
Judgements about standards and quality

Please see the full report.

Report published May 2014
Important note

The Institute had recently been granted foundation degree awarding powers (FDAP) by the Privy Council following detailed scrutiny of the Institute's application by QAA which included consideration of the setting and maintenance of academic standards and the quality of students' learning opportunities. Consequently, this review focused exclusively on the two judgement areas of information about higher education provision and the enhancement of students' learning opportunities at the Institute.

In response to the findings highlighted in this review report, the provider has published an action plan (opens in new window)

Previous review report


We visit universities and colleges once every six years to conduct a Higher Education Review of the standards and quality of the education they provide.

We train staff and students from other providers to carry out the review of the university or college and to make judgements on its management of quality and standards, its commitment to the process of improving its systems, and the reliability of the information produced about its provision.

We are independent of government, universities and colleges and our findings and judgements are published here.
