Quality and Standards Review for providers applying to register with the Office for Students (OfS) is the method we use to provide evidence to the OfS about whether providers meet the Core practices of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education.
The OfS will confirm with each provider during the registration process if a Quality and Standards Review is required.
The guidance on this page is for providers applying to register with the OfS.
Separate guidance is available for providers already registered with the OfS.
Provider Information Form
This form is to be used by providers to provide QAA with information, above that already supplied to the OfS, that will help plan the QSR. Please only submit this form if you have received explicit confirmation from the OfS that the next stage in the registration process is for the QAA to conduct a QSR.
