COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – support and guidance

Quality and Standards Review (QSR) for providers registered with the Office for Students (OfS) is the method we use to provide evidence to the OfS about whether registered providers referred by the OfS to the QAA meet one or more of the Core practices of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education (the Quality Code).


The OfS will notify each provider if a Quality and Standards Review is required.


The guidance on this page is for providers registered with the OfS.


Separate guidance is available for providers applying to register with the OfS.
