Brunel University London is responsible for the academic standards and quality of the education that it provides which is consistent with the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (FHEQ), an important national reference point for providers of UK university degrees.
Senate Regulations constitute the University’s regulatory framework within which standards are defined and assured.
The University’s processes and procedures to assure the quality of learning and teaching and the standards of the awards it confers are also aligned with the UK Quality Code for Higher Education, published by the Quality Assurance Agency, which sets out national expectations that all providers of UK higher education are required to meet.
All policies and guidelines relating to quality assurance can be found on the University's Policies and Documents page (please filter by current academic year). These documents are also available under their respective theme - please see list on the right hand side of this page. All quality assurance related forms and templates which support policies are available on the A-Z list. The University has also created a diagram setting out how we assure standards.
The Quality Assurance intranet pages (for staff only) can be accessed here.
