QSN 21/22 Webinar Series: 6 Let’s talk about standards. Working with the new definitions in the OfS regulatory framework

Thursday 10th Mar 2022 - Thursday 10th Mar 2022
OfS’s recent consultations on revised conditions of registration relating to academic quality and standards have raised fundamental questions about the UK higher education approaches these issues.  One of OfS’s claims is that its proposals will ‘raise expected standards for all universities and colleges’.  This webinar will examine what this might mean for higher education providers in respect of academic standards, and the implications for how we approach assuring these standards.

This webinar will take place via Zoom. A link will be sent out in the joining instructions.
