International Quality Assurance Programme

Hello I’m Douglas Blackstock, I’m the
chief executive of the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency for higher education
QAA, we’re the independent expert body working with the sector in the
UK to establish standards but also to assess quality and improve the learning
experiences of students. Our international quality assurance program
is an exciting initiative it provides a stimulating forum for participants to
come together to discuss key issues about quality assurance that are relevant to
all of us internationally. The program includes presentations from a range of
expert speakers including visits to higher education institutions, panel and
group discussions and a guided tour. It also provides excellent opportunities
for networking, enabling delegates to learn from each other, though delegates may
work in different countries and contexts we all often struggle with similar
issues. Through sharing practice and understanding the different higher
education environments of others we can collectively strengthen the learning
experiences we offer to students around the world. We hope to see you at our
November program and we will be delighted to welcome you to our
ever-growing international community. For more
information about the program go to and on the website you’ll find
more information about the services the QAA offers across the world, we look
forward to welcoming you to the International Quality Assurance Programmme
