This consultation ran from November 2018 to February 2019. UKSCQA co-ordinates a UK-wide co-regulatory approach to quality and standards by bringing together the UK funding bodies and regulators for higher education with sector and student representative bodies.

This consultation sets out proposals for taking forward the recommendations presented in the report – ‘Transparent, consistent and fair academic standards: degree classifications’. Published alongside this consultation, the report presents research and analysis conducted by Universities UK (UUK), GuildHE and QAA on behalf of UKSCQA that considers the drivers of the uplift in degree classification over the past decade.
