External Quality Assessment

Our programmes are subject to external scrutiny by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). We were particularly commended for the following good practice:

  • Students who met the (audit) team were complimentary about the experience of studying in a research-intensive environment. They spoke of the motivation they gained from being taught by leading researchers.
  • The Careers Service contributes effectively to the employability of the University's students. It particularly works with academic departments to embed employability skills in the student learning experience.
