International Membership has been designed to support international institutions with safeguarding academic standards and enhancing the quality of the student learning experience, as well as building connections with the UK. It builds on our existing Membership service for UK higher education institutions. There are two types of International Membership:  

  • Full International Membership, available to all institutions that have QAA’s International Quality Review (IQR) accreditation.
  • International Associate Membership, available to institutions that do not yet have QAA's IQR accreditation but are recognised by their local quality agency.

International Membership provides access to a range of exclusive quality enhancement resources, designed to support institutions in improving their own provision, which will be available to all staff and students in member institutions. International Members also have access to exclusive events, workshops, briefings and training that outline developments and best practice in all aspects of international quality assurance.


Full details about QAA International Membership can be found in the Training and Services section of our website.
