Quality and Standards Review (QSR)

Quality and Standards Review for monitoring and intervention is the process QAA uses to provide evidence to the Office for Students (OfS) about whether registered providers referred by the OfS to QAA meet one or more of the Core practices of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education (the Quality Code).

QSR review was conducted at the London College in November 2019. The review team has concluded that all the Core Practices have been ‘Met’ with ‘High Confidence’.

University of Derby

The London College is an approved partner of the University of Derby.

The University of Derby is an ambitious, innovative and modern university offering industry-relevant, expert teaching, from foundation and undergraduate degrees to postgraduate study and research.

Derby’s academic strength is backed up by practical experience to ensure its students are ready for a successful career, wherever their talents lie. With more than £200 million invested in the last ten years, the University offers some of the best university facilities in the UK, including a Nuclear Skills Academy, developed in partnership with Rolls-Royce Submarines Ltd, STEM Centre, Forensic Training Facility and NHS-standard hospital ward.

A new city-centre based Derby Business School, part of the University’s broader vision to expand its reach and reputation across the UK and globally, is also being developed. This landmark building is proposed to be net zero carbon in construction and operation, aligning to the University’s sustainability strategies and its low carbon expertise and research agenda.

At Derby, academic expertise, world-leading research and innovation is used to foster talent, support skills development and promote links with businesses regionally, nationally and globally. As well as traditional degree routes, the University offers apprenticeships from levels 2-7 for a wide range of job roles, working with high profile employers including Rolls Royce, the NHS and the Institute of Quarrying. In addition, continuing professional development, knowledge transfer and sector-leading online courses create opportunities for individuals, employers and communities to develop and flourish.

The University is committed to working with partners to support social mobility, opening the doors to lifelong learning opportunities for anybody who wishes to progress their education. This has been recognised though the University’s involvement in the city of Derby’s membership of the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities and its vision for inclusive lifelong learning that truly puts Derby on the world map as an exemplar of best practice.
