Quality Enhancement Review (QER) is the method by which we review Welsh higher education providers as part of the Quality Assessment Framework for Wales. It provides a distinctive approach to institutional review, developed to address the particular context of the Welsh higher education sector. 


QER provides quality assurance and supports quality enhancement, assuring governing bodies, students and the wider public that providers meet the requirements of the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales. QER assesses providers against agreed baseline regulatory requirements and the European Standards and Guidelines.
