The Student Strategic Advisory Committee (SSAC) meets three times a year to facilitate discussions between students and QAA on developments in the higher education sector.

SSAC meetings are attended by QAA's Chief Executive and other members of the QAA Board, and have shaped national student-centred projects with NUS, introduced student reviewers onto QAA review teams, and influenced QAA's overall strategy.
