QAA Consultation on Information for Prospective Students

QAA has developed new guidance on behalf of the UK funding bodies: Guidance about Providing Information to Prospective Undergraduate Students. QAA are now inviting feedback and views on this guidance.


Why are QAA consulting?

This guidance is intended to help universities and colleges delivering higher education to meet both prospective undergraduate students’ information needs and their legal obligations in terms of the information that they provide.

The guidance reflects the findings of the funding bodies’ Review of information about learning and teaching, and the student experience, and takes account of the advice published by CMA to help universities and colleges understand their responsibilities under consumer law.

Who should respond?

QAA invite contributions to this consultation from anyone with an interest in higher education in the UK, including representatives from all four countries; prospective, current and past students; and staff from the full range of higher education providers, including staff with responsibilities for recruitment and admissions, quality assurance, learning and teaching, communications and web development.

Please submit feedback via the online survey.


QAA have also arranged three webinars to provide participants with an opportunity to find out more about the guidance, ask questions and share ideas. Registration is free of charge. Visit the webinar booking site for more information.
