We work with QAA Members in Northern Ireland across activities specific to Northern Ireland, working collaboratively to support our shared commitment to enhancing and enriching the learning experience of students. You can find out more about Membership in Northern Ireland in the Membership section.

Working with our partners we seek to champion the interests of higher education with government, funders and partners, and promote cooperation and sharing good practice between providers.

We actively listen to membership to ensure members get best value and have opportunities to learn from the experience of the wider QAA network and participate in UK-wide events and opportunities.

We will continue to support the active participation of students as partners in our work and in quality enhancement in Northern Ireland, seeking further ways to deepen their involvement and strengthen the student voice.

QAA can provide commissioned quality reviews for individual institutions. These are enhancement and peer-led, and responsive to the context of each institution, as well as the policy context in Northern Ireland.

QAA Northern Ireland Conference 2022

This Conference, entitled ‘The Future of Quality Enhancement’, brought the Northern Ireland sector together to develop a shared understanding of the key reference points for quality enhancement in Wales and Scotland, who currently have enhancement-led approaches to quality.

It followed QAA’s proposal to the Department for the Economy (DfE) to develop the next external quality assurance review method for Northern Ireland.

The full range of materials from the conference including presentations and workshop presentation slides and resources are published on our Membership Resources Site.
