Scottish Quality Concerns Scheme in context - student guide - sparqs


A resource for students, developed by sparqs to give context to QAA Scotland’s Scottish Quality Concerns Scheme.  

The Scheme provides an opportunity for students, staff and other parties to raise concerns about the quality and standards of Scottish higher education to the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Scotland. QAA Scotland is Scotland’s quality body for higher education. Its role is to safeguard academic standards and improve the quality of the student experience.

QAA Scotland published guidance on the Scheme in July 2022, which is available on their webpage around how to raise concerns in Scotland.  The sparqs guide provides some context for students, and sits at the bottom of the QAA webpage, as well as on the sparqs website. 

The sparqs resource outlines where and when the Scheme is the appropriate route for concerns and provides examples of issues that would be eligible for consideration under the Scheme.
