University procedures for quality assurance are required to take account of the various components of the QAA's UK Quality Code for Higher Education. The Quality Code has three sections:
Part A: Setting and maintaining academic standards
Part B: Assuring and enhancing academic quality
Part C: Information about higher education provision
Parts A and B contain a number of chapters detailing specific areas within the broad theme; Part C is a single chapter. Each chapter contains an expectation that all HE providers are required to follow and a series of indicators which illustrate how the expectation can be met. University policies and procedures map to the various areas of the Quality Code and are informed by the requirements of the Code. The applicable sections of the Quality Code are indicated alongside reference to University policies and procedures throughout the Quality Framework.
