Higher Education Review

What is a Higher Education Review?

In some ways similar to school OFSTED reviews, higher education providers have Higher Education Reviews (HER) to monitor and advise on standards and quality in UK higher education. The reviews are conducted every five to six years by peer reviewers, through an independent organisation called the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), and this year Manchester Met are being reviewed.

The Student Submission

In January 2016, The Union submitted a document called the Student Submission to the review team to be considered as part of their review processes. As part of the this we made some "Next Steps" suggestions for us to work with University staff to improve at MMU. If you are interested in reading more about students' opinions of their academic experience at MMU you can read the whole document here.
