This handbook states the aims of Quality Review Visit, setting out the approach and giving guidance to providers preparing for, and taking part in, review.
Quality Review Visit (QRV) was the method used from 2017-18 to test a provider's readiness to enter the publicly-funded UK higher education sector.
As of August 2018, the QRV method was no longer in use by the Office for Students (OfS). It was replaced with a new review method called Quality and Standards Review (QSR) for use from the 2018-19 academic year onwards. QSR aligns with the Quality and Standards conditions of the OfS Regulatory Framework and with the revised UK Quality Code.
