COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – support and guidance

QAA is working rapidly to support the sector through the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. We are engaging closely with our members as well as the wider higher education community including student bodies, regulators and funders across the UK.


We are here to work collaboratively and to support you as you make necessary changes to learning, teaching and assessment. Over the coming weeks we will continue that support in a variety of ways including:

  • providing guidance on mitigating the impact on assessment, progression and graduation in coming academic years
  • developing supporting materials on priority topics 
  • delivering regular webinars to support the sector in sharing practice
  • hosting the QAA Quality Discussion Forum where colleagues can debate and discussion challenges as well as sharing what has worked.

QAA Quality Discussion Forum

The QAA Quality Discussion Forum is designed to facilitate discussion and create supportive communities of practitioners. It is a place where they can share their thoughts, ideas, experiences and practices about the current challenges being faced across the HE sector.
