New arrangements for quality assurance in Higher Education

  • 2 May 2013
  • By Anthony McClaran & Professor Roger Brown

This HEPI Report – part of an occasional series of HEPI Reports in which HEPI provides a platform for distinguished figures to reflect on important issues in higher education policy – focuses on the new arrangements for quality assurance in higher education with papers by Anthony McClaran, Chief Executive of the QAA and Professor Roger Brown, Professor of HE Policy at Liverpool Hope University.

Anthony McClaran provides a review of the recent developments in quality assurance and focuses on the work that has gone into developing the new method, Higher Education Review.

Professor Roger Brown, providing a critical analysis of the proposed new risk-based approach to quality assurance, argues that the central issue, given the new and more competitive environment in which all higher education institutions are now having to operate, is whether the new regime will be strong enough to protect the future quality and standards of UK higher education.
