Date: September 8 - 2021

QAA is inviting expressions of interest from the academic and subject community to act as Chairs and Deputy Chairs for the review of 14 Subject Benchmark Statements. QAA leads the development of Subject Benchmark Statements and reviews them on a cyclical basis to ensure they are useful as possible for discipline communities and can fulfill a range of purposes across the sector, including course design and providing support for securing academic standards.

In 2021-22, QAA will be reviewing the following subjects:

  • Anthropology
  • Biomedical science
  • Biosciences
  • Business and Management
  • Economics
  • Engineering
  • English
  • Languages, Cultures and Societies
  • Law
  • Linguistics
  • Mathematics, Statistics and Operational Research
  • Osteopathy
  • Politics and International Relations
  • Psychology

Members of the academic and subject communities are encouraged to apply. Academic representatives will only be drawn from higher education providers who are QAA Members.

More information on how to submit an expression of interest is available on our call for expressions of interest web page.

The deadline to submit an expression of interest is midday on Monday 4 October 2021.

The call for expressions of interest to join the subject Advisory Groups will be released in early October.
