This version of our Strategy is intended for international readers. Our Strategy underpins QAA’s future work in ensuring that students and learners experience the highest possible quality of education.
The UK is a major player in the field of international higher education. We take a leading role in international developments in standards and quality, working not just to maintain but to enhance and reinforce both the quality and integrity of the UK higher education sector and its reputation in the international sphere.
We are a member of a number of organisations and networks including ENQA and INQAAHE. We also have close relationships with many quality assurance agencies and government bodies around the world.

The Scottish Funding Council (SFC), Department for the Economy in Northern Ireland (DENI) and Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) have worked in close partnership with QAA for many years in creating, maintaining, and strengthening quality arrangements that are bespoke to the Northern Irish, Scottish and Welsh higher education systems. Over that time, QAA has consistently delivered high quality work that meets the needs of the nations, operating in collaboration with the sector and applying its expertise and experience. We have confidence in QAA as a valued and internationally respected quality assurance agency and look forward to continuing to work with QAA in the future.
