What does QAA offer for students?

Publication date: 31 Jan 2023


Student events and networks

We deliver a range of events and networks to support members involved in engaging students in quality assurance and enhancement, including student representatives.

Student Engagement Toolkit: Planning an enhancement activity

This eight-part toolkit is designed to support student engagement and enhancement across higher education. Its primary audience is student leaders, students' union officers and senior student representatives who may be new to working in higher education and quality. Staff can also benefit from the resource.


We also offer training to support understanding of quality assurance and enhancement, and build confidence in planning activities for students, by making use of the toolkit.


Making student representation and engagement on committees more meaningful 

Drawing on a discussion at our Student Quality Network held in May 2023, this resource explores some of the key challenges that can hinder meaningful student engagement and representation on committees and offers reflective questions for you to consider as well as providing examples of positive practice aimed at ensuring student contributions are impactful and valued.
