COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – support and guidance

International Quality Review is designed to analyse and reflect on non-UK providers’ approaches to quality assurance. It challenges and benchmarks existing processes against the European Standards and Guidelines (ESG) and helps to drive improvement and excellence.



IQR enables your institution to demonstrate that your quality assurance systems meet international standards. A successful review results in accreditation by QAA, providing trust and confidence for your students and international partners. IQR provides opportunities to:


  1. Demonstrate effective quality assurance measured against international benchmarks
  2. Strengthen your global positioning
  3. Drive improvement and excellence
  4. Develop partnerships with UK institutions

IQR was a phenomenal learning experience for the improvement of our university’s processes. QAA supported and guided us at every stage. When our team had doubts, QAA helped us promptly to make us clear on our preparations and submission.
