Our PSRB Forums support regular engagement between professional, statutory and professional bodies (PSRBs) and our members. The most recent meeting, held in May, covered the review of the UK Quality Code, the rise of artificial intelligence tools, the experience of international students in the UK, the marking and assessment boycott, and a new QAA resource on competency-based education.
