  • To see the latest Quality Assurance Agency review for this provider please use the link below.

    Providers that have been granted degree awarding powers (DAPs) and that are not in the publicly funded higher education sector are granted DAPs on a renewable basis and are reviewed after each term by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). See more about the requirements for these providers.

    In addition, since September 2015, Government policy has been that all alternative higher education providers in England, who want their students to be eligible for student support, have had to have a successful Higher Education Review (Alternative Providers) (HER AP) from the QAA on entry. These providers must maintain their relationship with the QAA and continue to meet the expected standards during annual monitoring and in any future reviews. See more information about the quality requirements for alternative providers with specific course designation.
