COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – support and guidance

We are excited to launch a new programme for delivery in 2021. Our Collaborative Enhancement Projects offer funding opportunities for small groups of our member institutions to work together on projects to enhance the quality of the participating institutions' student learning experiences. At the same time, the projects should also develop outputs that will benefit the wider QAA Membership and higher education sector.

From recent discussions with our members, we are particularly interested in projects that address:

  • blended learning delivery
  • assessment design for digital delivery
  • modular qualifications and associated approaches for supporting students moving between work and study
  • postgraduate provision and student experience (research and taught).

This isn’t an exhaustive list and we are also happy to hear your priority topics even if they don’t immediately align with those identified here.
