COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – support and guidance

We work with QAA Members in Northern Ireland across activities specific to Northern Ireland, working collaboratively to support a commitment to enhancing and enriching the learning experience of students.

We recently conducted two projects in Northern Ireland to help us develop a dedicated programme of work, resources and events, and also facilitate access to other QAA activities that best meet the needs of providers in Northern Ireland. We engaged members and stakeholders through a series of structured interviews.

The first project explored how best to develop the QAA Membership offer in Northern Ireland. The second enabled us to further understand providers’ approaches to enhancement in Northern Ireland to inform future developments for a new review method and QAA’s enhancement activity.

In the coming year, we intend to discuss the outcomes of these projects with our members and the Department for the Economy so that we can provide the best possible support to institutions in Northern Ireland.

We are committed to supporting a biannual conference in Northern Ireland, provisionally scheduled for October 2021.

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 and strengthen student involvement.


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