A key part of our role is to review how providers of higher education maintain their academic standards and quality. We carry out many reviews each year for all types of institutions, including private and overseas providers. Review reports are published on our website.
In line with the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (2015) (ESG), QAA is committed to have in place processes for internal quality assurance related to defining, assuring and enhancing the quality and integrity of our activities. This document outlines our approach to internal quality assurance of assessment and review activity.
The QAA Quality Mark and Review Graphic
Providers who meet or exceed UK expectations for quality and standards in their latest QAA review are eligible to use the QAA Quality Mark or Review Graphic. This is also displayed on their report page. The Quality Mark is only awarded to QAA subscribers.
