The Quality Code

The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) publishes the UK Quality Code for Higher Education which sets out the expectations that all providers of UK higher education are required to meet.  It replaces the former QAA Code of Practice.
There are three parts to the Code and these can be accessed on the QAA's website via the following links:
Part A :         Setting and maintaining threshold academic standards
Part B:          Assuring and enhancing academic quality
Part C:         Information about higher education provision
Subject Benchmarks
The QAA has also published Subject Benchmarks in a wide range of subjects for both honours degrees and master's degrees.  These set out what achievement is expected according to level and subject and describe what can be expected of graduates in the subject.
Information on subject benchmarks and the individual benchmarks for subjects are available on the QAA's website from the following link:
