UCLan Burnley recently received unreserved confirmation of the first class university education that they provide, following a review by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).
A team of reviewers visited the UCLan Burnley campus in order to undertake a Higher Education Review (HER), which aims to inform students and the wider public whether a provider meets the expectations of the higher education sector.
The review, which involved staff, students, alumni and employers who work closely with the University, covered each area within the quality code, and compares higher education provision against a series of national standards. UCLan Burnley yet again showed how it works tirelessly to ensure that its students and prospective students are given outstanding support and excellent opportunities at every possible turn, by meeting all standards, receiving four areas of good practice and one affirmation.
Assistant Principal for Sixth Form and University Education Alison Cameron Brandwood said:
“We are delighted with the findings of the HER report, and how clearly it shows that UCLan Burnley’s mission to provide a first class university education for all is becoming a reality.
I am particularly pleased that the areas of good practice include the advice and guidance we give to prospective students, the support we put in place to ease the transition of those progressing to university, the research undertaken by our staff and the lengths we go to, to ensure that our students benefit from first class enhancement opportunities. It is great to see these bring recognised as our staff work hard to ensure these high standards are met.”
