We ensure that UK higher education is represented internationally through membership of the following organisations and networks:
The European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA)
We are a full and founding member of ENQA, the membership organisation for higher education quality assurance agencies in Europe. Full membership of ENQA shows that an agency complies with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area.
The International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE)
We are a full member of INQAAHE, a worldwide association of nearly 300 organisations. In 2014, QAA was found to be comprehensively aligned with INQAAHE's Guidelines of Good Practice.
The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA)
We are also a member of the CHEA International Quality Group, which addresses quality assurance issues and challenges in an international setting.
