UK higher education has a well-deserved reputation across the world for its high level of academic quality and rigorous academic standards. SIRM follows QAA Code of practice, which provides a guide for universities and colleges on managing academic standards and quality. The Code of practice covers a range of issues and is divided into sections. Some of the sections relate directly to courses and the other sections have aspects and guidance that have an impact on the academic standards and quality of courses, but are managed by the university or college as a whole.
