Through QAA Membership, we provide vision, expertise and guidance on the topics that matter to staff and students.

We work closely with all higher education providers and the respective funders and regulators, in line with the policy and regulatory approach of each UK nation.

We work internationally on behalf of our members and the wider UK higher education sector. We now welcome International Members, as well as those from the UK. 


We work in partnership with stakeholders across the globe to review and report on UK transnational education (TNE), safeguarding standards and improving quality. We believe that UK TNE helps maintain and develop the world-class brand of UK higher education.

Our UK-wide responsibilities also include being the regulator of the Access to HE Diploma, which transforms lives by offering students from non-traditional backgrounds access to higher education.
