QAA Scotland has devolved responsibility for the work of QAA in Scotland.
Our work is enhancement-led, in line with the Quality Enhancement Framework (QEF). The QEF supports higher education institutions in managing the quality of the student learning experience and provides public confidence in academic standards.
We work closely with higher education providers, funding bodies and students’ organisations. Our partners include:
- Scottish Government
- Scottish Funding Council
- Universities Scotland
- NUS Scotland
- student partnerships in quality Scotland (sparqs)
- Advance HE.
Engaging with students is integral to what we do. Every institutional review team includes a student member, and we include student representatives in all our working groups and committees.
We aim to ensure that our work recognises international perspectives and contributions. This includes developments in the Bologna Process and across the European higher education area.
