“We are delighted to announce that the QAA in their report has recognised the excellent work of the University. In particular, with regard to the quality of the student learning experience the review stated, There are two features of good practice in this judgement area, relating to the wide and varied range of opportunities for students to develop skills and build experience, which enables them to develop their professional potential, and to the personalised learning support provided to students throughout their studies, which enables them to develop their personal and academic potential.’ I am grateful to the colleagues in DAAQA for their excellent work in organising the successful review but also the faculty and administrative staff who support students for their commitment to providing high quality learning experiences.”
