Quality And Standards
QAA Quality Code
The QAA Quality Code for Higher Education sets out the expectations that all providers of UK higher education are required to meet.
The Quality Code gives all higher education providers a shared starting point for setting, describing and assuring the academic standards of their higher education awards and programmes and the quality of the learning opportunities they provide. We use it to design policies for maintaining academic standards and quality.
The Quality Code has three parts, on academic standards, academic quality and information about higher education provision. Each of these is subdivided into chapters covering specific themes.
Further information is available from the QAA website
External examining provides one of the principal means for maintaining UK threshold academic standards within autonomous higher education institutions. External examining is therefore an integral and essential part of institutional quality assurance. At the College we make scrupulous use of the reports external examiners provide to both assure quality and standards and to help identify opportunities for enhancement.
(Note: external examiner reports are available internally for students on their course moodle page.)
Student Feedback and Enagement
Student Survey Results
The results of internal student surveys are available internally on each of the course’s moodle page.
The Discover Uni website has the published National Student Survey results with details of the HE courses that have sufficient respondents.
We engage and listen to our higher education students to continually enhance the learner experience. We use a wide range of methods to engage with students and offer a range of opportunities for those who wish to represent the student body on key decision making committees.
