Degree Outcomes Statement

In May 2019, UKSCQA, QAA, UUK and Guild HE jointly published a Statement of Intent, which reaffirmed their commitment to protecting the value of UK degrees.  As part of the implementation of this Statement, these sector-representative bodies agreed that universities should, in 2019/20, publish evaluative Degree Outcomes Statement on their websites. Such documents should set out the results of an internal institutional review, provide clear assurance on how the value of their awards is protected, and demonstrate the institutions are meeting the expectations of the Quality Code and the Office for Students’ ongoing conditions of registration (B4 and B5).

Our Degree Outcomes Statement sets out information on our degree classification profile for the past five years, and includes the distribution of outcomes across different student groups. In addition, we have created an Assuring Standards diagram which demonstrates the rigour and robustness of our quality assurance mechanisms. As part of our Statement, we have committed to reviewing our awarding data annually, to monitor the outcomes of our students, and to ensure the information published on our webpages is accurate.
