Skip to main content Accessibility Statement

Membership of QAA is voluntary for higher education providers in England. QAA is an independent charity working to benefit students and higher education. Our work to enhance quality and protect standards in England is funded solely through membership fees. Therefore, to have access to QAA guidance, resources and activities paid for by membership fees, you need to be a QAA Member.


In England, QAA Membership is entirely separate from the statutory review work we undertake as the Designated Quality Body.
