COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – support and guidance

In response to feedback received from QAA Members in Wales, QAA Cymru has launched a new enhancement initiative for the benefit of the sector and students in Wales.


Our Collaborative Enhancement Projects aim to bring QAA Members in Wales together to collaborate on work of mutual interest. They will be supported by QAA Cymru through funding, and some staff facilitator support.


QAA Cymru has worked with the Universities Wales Learning and Teaching Network and QAA Members to identify potential themes and topics for collaboration, which have the potential to add value to the whole sector once completed.
