QAA Briefing: Student Engagement in Quality Assurance and Enhancement

Date: July 20 - 2018

Student engagement is about ensuring that students are involved in how the standards and quality of higher education programmes are set, maintained and enhanced. This can happen at different levels: programme level, institutional level, or across the quality assurance system through engagement with organisations like QAA.

Our latest briefing, Student Engagement in Quality Assurance and Enhancement, explores the approaches taken across the UK quality system to ensure that students are actively involved. It looks at the principles that are shared across the UK, such as the way that key elements of student engagement are listed as core and common practices in the UK Quality Code. It also breaks down how student engagement is embedded in different ways in the four nations of the UK to meet the needs of students, as well as responding to different regulatory needs.
