Higher Education Review

University of Bristol achieves successful review

QAA Quality Mark thumbnail‌The University’s quality and standards of its education provision have been confirmed by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).‌

The Higher Education Review, which took place in February 2016, judged that the University had successfully met the UK expectations in all four areas of judgement: academic standards; the provision of learning opportunities and information; and the enhancement of the quality of student learning opportunities.

​Professor Judith Squires, the Pro Vice-Chancellor for Education and Students, said: “We are very pleased to receive such a positive report from the QAA. The findings endorse the continued commitment of our staff to the delivery of a high-quality student experience that enables our students to reach their personal and professional potential.”

The Review is carried out every five years by expert staff and students from other universities. The full report can be downloaded from the QAA website.

The University has produced an Higher Education Review 2016: Action Plan (PDF, 96kB)  to outline how it will address the review’s recommendations, continue to implement the affirmations and further embed good practice.

A Self-Evaluation Document (UoB access only - pdf, 3,910kb) was provided in advance of the Review containing evidence on the setting and maintaining of academic standards and the management of quality processes for the education we provide.
