External Quality Assurance

In March 2016 the University was reviewed by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) under its programme of Higher Education Reviews (HER) of all institutions delivering higher education in England.

Preparations for the University's HER included submission to QAA

QAA published its report on the findings of the University's HER in June 2016.

The University published its action plan, Oxford HER Action Plan (233kb) responding to the recommendations of the report. Progress on the action plan will be monitored by Education Committee. An update on the action plan was published in August 2017 Oxford HER Action Plan Update 2017 (42kb) .

The HER programme came to an end in 2016 and has been replaced by a revised operating model for quality assurance currently being established by HEFCE.
