Glyndwr student support commended by Quality Assurance Agency
Wrexham Glyndwr University’s student support has been commended by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) as part of its Quality Enhancement Review of the university.
The QAA has commended Wrexham Glyndwr for ‘the effective monitoring and support of individual students in a personalised way to facilitate their academic development’ as well as ‘the articulation and dissemination of a comprehensive set of strategies designed to support the enhancement of the student learning experience.’
Overall, Wrexham Glyndwr University meets UK expectations for quality and standards and has been awarded with the QAA Quality Mark.
Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Claire Taylor said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded the QAA Quality Mark and to have received commendations for our work to support our students.
“We have robust arrangements for securing academic standards, managing academic quality and for enhancing the quality of the student experience by enabling ‘ground-up’ initiatives, prompted by our students and staff, to come to fruition.”
The report recognises that high proportions of students at Wrexham Glyndwr are from groups who are generally under-represented in higher education and are those likely to face difficulties in accessing and engaging in education.
“We’re very proud to have been rated as the UK’s most socially inclusive university by the Times and Sunday Times,” added Claire.
Our approach to the provision of personalised support is multi-faceted and includes access to individual advice and guidance – whether online or in person, and a personal tutorial system which is integrated with academic and professional services in order to enhance students’ academic development.”
The QAA review is an evidence-based process during which the Quality Enhancement Review team make judgements on the requirements of the
European Standards and Guidelines and the regulatory requirements of the Quality Assessment Framework for Wales. The report can be viewed in full at www.qaa.ac.uk.
