QAA is inviting expressions of interest to join subject advisory groups for Subject Benchmark Statements

Date: February 19 - 2021

QAA is inviting expressions of interest to join subject advisory groups for 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 inform a range of purposes across the sector, including course design and providing support for securing academic standards.

In 2021, QAA will be reviewing the following subjects:

  • Archaeology
  • Chemistry (BSc and MSc/MSci/MChem)
  • Classics and Ancient History (including Byzantine Studies and Modern Greek)
  • Computing and Computing (Master's)
  • Counselling and Psychotherapy (BA &MA)
  • Criminology
  • Early Childhood Studies
  • Earth Sciences, Environmental Sciences and Environmental Studies
  • Forensic Science
  • Geography
  • History
  • Housing Studies
  • Theology and Religious Studies.

Members of the academic community, employers, professional, statutory and regulatory bodies (PSRBs) and students are all encouraged to apply. Academic representatives and current students will only be drawn from higher education providers who are QAA Members.

To submit an expression of interest, please complete our online survey, which can be accessed through the expression of interest webpage, and return to us by 5pm on Friday 12 March.

For enquiries relating to Subject Benchmark Statements or subject advisory groups, please contact Amy Spencer, QAA’s Quality and Standards Development Officer, at a.spencer@qaa.ac.uk.
