Woburn House, London


This one day programe will work through the latest QAA developments and what they mean for UK higher education institutions with overseas provision. What are the expectations on universities for due diligence, and what happens if a partnership falls foul of the core expectations? Will there be changes to quality assurance expectations that will affect how institutions should operate? What should an institution be prepared for if their provision falls within a QAA country review’s scope?

We’ll also consider what due diligence looks like in practice, meeting other auditors’ needs, and preparing for future in country reviews.
