The Quality & Standards Team is responsible for the operation of the University’s academic quality and standards framework, including activities in course approval and review, annual academic monitoring, changes to courses, the assessment process, boards of examiners, published information and student satisfaction surveys.

They are responsible for ensuring UCA’s compliance with external regulatory requirements and regularly engage with bodies such as the Office for Students, the Quality Assurance Agency, AdvanceHE and other professional and statutory regulatory bodies. The team also actively contributes to senior committees of the University and annually publishes the UCA Quality & Standards Manual.
