Benefits of Membership

Member institutions

  1. All institutions which offer higher education awards and subscribe to the QAA are entitled to be members of QSN. The annual subscription is £150, and runs from 1 August to 31 July.
  2. The benefits of membership include:
    • Reduced fees for events (including the Annual Conference, and Symposium events)
    • The opportunity to attend certain member-only events
    • The opportunity to send more than one delegate to events
    • Eligibility to stand for election to the Executive.
  3. Each member institution has one institutional nominee, who will receive email updates. The nominee will be responsible for sharing material with relevant staff as appropriate. Given the emphasis of QSN as an organisation for those with responsibility for quality strategy, and the importance of retaining a specific identity, it has been agreed that institutions should not be permitted more than one nominee with these access rights.
  4. QSN members can also purchase a “Season Ticket” at an annual cost of £495. The season ticket provides:
    • Institutional membership of QSN
    • One free QSN Conference place
    • Subsequent Conference places at Member rates
    • A free place at (a minimum of) two Symposium events during the year, and member rates for subsequent Symposium delegates.
  5. QSN members can also purchase a “Season Ticket Plus One” at an annual cost of £750. The season ticket provides:
    • Institutional membership of QSN for two colleagues
    • Two free QSN Conference places
    • Subsequent Conference places at Member rates
    • Two free places at (a minimum of) two Symposium events during the year, and member rates for subsequent Symposium delegates.
  6. Any additional events during the year (such as extraordinary meetings to consider specific developments, or meetings with the Chief Executive of QAA) will also be available at a preferential rate.

    The place is allocated to the institution, and is not tied to a named individual.

  7. Associate Member institutions
    1. All institutions which operate under Education Oversight from QAA, or which have applied for educational oversight, are entitled to be Associate Members of QSN. The annual subscription is £150, and runs from August to July.
    2. The benefits of associate membership include:
      • Reduced fees for events (including the Annual Conference, and Symposium events)
      • The opportunity to attend certain member-only events
      • The opportunity to send more than one delegate to events.
    3. Each associate member institution has one institutional nominee, who will receive email updates. The nominee will be responsible for sharing material with relevant staff as appropriate. Given the emphasis of QSN as an organisation for those with responsibility for quality strategy, and the importance of retaining a specific identity, it has been agreed that institutions should not be permitted more than one nominee with these access rights.
    4. Associate member institutions are also entitled to purchase a season ticket, under the same terms and conditions as members, described at paragraph 1.4 above.
  8. Non-member institutions
    1. Institutions which do not formally subscribe to QSN will remain on the mailing list, and will still receive information about the Annual Conference and other Symposium events. However they will not receive the other benefits listed above.
  9. Individual membership
    1. QSN has noted that there may be individuals working for other organisations within Higher Education (including, but not exclusively, HEFCE, QAA, HE Academy and others) who would like the opportunity to engage with the Network. Those in this category are eligible for individual membership, at an annual cost of £100. (The subscription can of course be paid by the organisation.)
