  • The importance of consulting
    QAA's mission is to safeguard standards and improve the quality of UK higher education. To do this, we evaluate how well universities and colleges meet their responsibilities as self-regulating institutions by carrying out external reviews, and publishing reports on what we find. The basis for the judgements which are made in the course of these reviews is the reference point known (since December 2011) as the UK Quality Code for Higher Education (previously the Academic Infrastructure), which QAA maintains on behalf of the sector. Rather than being a rulebook, the Quality Code sets out high-level "Expectations" which universities and colleges are required to meet through their internal systems of quality assurance.
