Higher Education Review - a more risk-based approach to quality assurance

(April 2013)

Key points

This consultation invited comments on the draft version of the handbook for Higher Education Review - a more risk-based approach to the quality assurance of higher education offered by Quality Assurance Agency subscribers in England and Northern Ireland.

Our response, submitted via an online survey, gives the clear message that professional statutory and regulatory bodies such as CILIP, and their accreditation reports, can be important information resources in the proposed process.

The handboook will be launched in 2013-14 and succeeds two methods: Institutional Review of Higher Education Institutions in England and Northern Ireland and Review of College Higher Education.
