QAA wants you to be confident about the quality and standards of your education and degree. As a student your input helps shape good practice and improve the quality of UK higher education. There are lots of ways for you to
get involved. We have over 50 students who join our reviewers to review institutions each year. Two of these sit on our board of directors. We also have a
Student Advisory Board which meets four times a year with our CEO and other members of the QAA management team.
What students can do:
provide feedback on courses
help develop learning and teaching in subject areas
in university or college decision-making processes
represent student views through a students' union or other body
