We are the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). Our mission is to safeguard standards and improve the quality of UK higher education. We offer advice, guidance and support to help universities, colleges and other institutions provide the best possible student experience of higher education. To support standards and promote quality enhancement, we publish a range of reference points and guidance. These publications are widely used by UK academic staff responsible for shaping the student experience. The UK Quality Code for Higher Education (the Quality Code) sets out the Expectations that all providers of UK higher education are required to meet. Providers use the Quality Code to design their respective policies for maintaining academic standards and quality. At a time of rapid change, we aim to be at the heart of the debate about quality, standards and enhancement. Both in the UK and internationally, we lead or participate in discussions and consultations with a wide range of interested parties, including institutions, funding councils and students' union representatives.
