The final report, which assesses the standards of UK higher education, commended UWS’s significant contribution towards widening access; well-designed and effective quality assurance and enhancement processes; and strategic collaborative provision, which ensures any partnerships align with institutional priorities.
Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of UWS, said: “I’m delighted the reviewers recognised the excellent work going on across a range of areas of our University.
“I’m particularly pleased the review highlighted our student-centred culture, commitment to widening access to educational opportunities for all, and sector-leading learning and teaching innovations.
“The review – which also commended our processes, data use and strategic vision – comes at an exciting time for UWS, with us having recently unveiled our new Strategy 2025. This lays the foundations for us to continue to achieve even greater excellence on the world stage, in partnership with global business, industry and the public and voluntary sectors.
