Key reference points

ELIR draws on a range of reference points, some are UK-wide like the UK Quality Code for Higher Education and others are specific to Scotland, like the Enhancement Themes or outcomes of the Focus On project. Other reference points will be specific to the individual institution and will be agreed on a case by case basis.
