Our membership activities are underpinned by regular events, networking and professional development opportunities, bringing together staff in a wide range of roles, along with students, to share innovative approaches, develop knowledge and benefit from QAA’s expertise.

Networks and events



We have established a series of popular member networks which encourage like-minded members from across the UK to dedicate time to discuss key issues. We publish network materials for members on the Membership Resources site, which you can access via these links:


Our member events provide opportunities to develop and exchange ideas on the latest policy and practice. These include:

PSRB Forum


Our PSRB Forums support regular engagement between professional, statutory and professional bodies (PSRBs) and our members. They discuss current topics and develop understanding of the different perspectives and requirements for students to complete accredited courses and move into the professions.

The most recent meeting, held in May, covered progress with the review of the UK Quality Code, the rise of artificial intelligence tools, the experience of international students in the UK, the marking and assessment boycott, and a new QAA resource on competency-based education.

The summary includes key discussion points on these topics and links to related QAA resources.
