QAA offers the following types of membership:

Membership across the UK

Membership for higher education providers based in the UK, with Introductory Membership available for small providers. We also offer an additional enhancement service - International Insights - which helps members explore issues on quality assuring and enhancing TNE delivery and international partnerships.


In England, membership of QAA is voluntary and funded solely through membership fees. It entirely separate from the statutory review work we undertake as the Designated Quality Body. Institutions in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland benefit from access to all areas of membership as part of the agreements with the sector, funders and regulators in their devolved administrations.


A detailed description of our Membership offer can be found in our Membership brochures for each nation.

Full International Membership for institutions who have achieved accreditation through a QAA International Quality Review.
