Previous reviews

February 2015

As ifs University College, we underwent a Higher Education Review by the Quality Assurance Agency in November 2014. The Review team's report and our action plan in response to the report is available here.

The QAA review team reported:

  • The setting and maintenance of the academic standards of awards meets UK expectations.
  • The quality of student learning opportunities meets UK expectations.
  • The quality of the information about learning opportunities meets UK expectations.
  • The enhancement of student learning opportunities meets UK expectations.

Besides addressing the four recommendations which the review team made, our response also welcomed the item of good practice regarding the facilitation of student awareness of, and engagement with, the financial services sector.
