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.

External examiners

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.

Resources for External Examiners are available within our External Examiners section.
