We work collaboratively with our QAA Membership community in Scotland across a range of activities specific to Scotland to support our shared commitment to enhancing and enriching the learning experience of students.

Working with our partners, we seek to champion the interests of higher education with government, funders and partners, and promote partnership and sharing good practice between providers.

In 2023-24, we are working in partnership with our members to:

  • lead on the development of the quality review arrangements (phase 2) to be in place from 2024-25
  • deliver the remaining 11 Quality Enhancement and Standards Reviews (QESR) and 8 Institutional Liaison Meetings (ILM)
  • undertake systematic analysis of the outcomes of the completed QESRs and ILMs
  • lead the development of a new approach to national enhancement activity across the tertiary sector
  • support the sector to embed previous enhancement activity and engage with the current cross-sector Tertiary Enhancement Project
  • engage with the Scottish Funding Council on the new tertiary approach to quality alongside our partner agencies.

In Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, members have access to an exclusive all-inclusive QAA Membership package, which automatically includes the International Insights enhancement service, specific activities in each devolved nation and access to the UK-wide member offer. QAA is committed to supporting collaborative working between the higher education sectors in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales to promote partnership and opportunities for enhancing the student experience.

Here’s what our members say:

QAA Membership is essential and highly valued by Glasgow Caledonian University. QAA provides invaluable support and guidance through a range of resources, networks and events in addition to its regulatory responsibilities as Scotland’s designated higher education quality body. QAA’s facilitatory approach of working with the sector through co-design of many of these activities means that collaboratively we are focused on the key strategic priorities that influence policy and practice with greatest positive impact.
