Middlesex celebrates vote of confidence from standards body

Middlesex University is celebrating a vote of confidence from the body that monitors teaching standards in the UK’s Higher Education Institutions.

The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) visited Middlesex in the spring and has just officially notified the University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Michael Driscoll of its findings.

In its report on the Institutional Audit it undertook, the QAA said auditors had confidence in the University’s current and likely future management of its academic standards and of the learning opportunities available to students.

There was also praise for the “meticulous attention” given to the establishment, development and integration of the University’s Dubai Campus, Middlesex initiatives to improve student progression and
achievement and the “distinctive contribution” of the University’s Work Based Learning programmes.  

Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic, Margaret House, was pleased but not surprised by the report. She said: “I have always had great confidence in our academic standards and the learning opportunities we offer to our students, and so it is encouraging to see that the QAA have looked closely at these areas, as well as many other parts of the University, and have reached the same conclusion as me.”

Her sentiments were echoed by Professor Driscoll who said: “This is really great news and a credit to all who work at Middlesex University.”
