COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – support and guidance

To participate in the QE-TNE Scheme you need to complete the registration form. The Scheme Agreements and Terms and Conditions are published below.


We will confirm receipt of your registration and issue an invoice in September 2021. The registration form for the scheme will remain open until Friday 17th September 2021.


This allows more time for institutions who have not yet had the opportunity to sign up for the scheme. Registration for QE-TNE will not re-open over the five-year duration of the scheme, so this is the only opportunity to sign up to participate in the programme.



How much does it cost?

Fees for participation in the five-year QE-TNE Scheme are normally invoiced annually in August and vary based on a provider’s TNE student numbers and QAA Membership status. (Invoices for 2021-22 will be issued in September 2021).


QAA will review QE-TNE Scheme prices annually and communicate any changes before the annual invoices are issued. QAA will seek to minimise any changes to annual fees during the five-year term.
