How do I learn the rating of the institutions Iím interested in applying to?The paramount factor to be looked at is the Quality of Education. While there are many rating agencies and ratings reports, one of the most reliable ones is the Quality Assurance Agency. The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) is an independent body to ensure that the provision and standards of higher education are safeguarded and enhanced. It reviews the performance of institutions by auditing the way in which each institution manages the overall quality and standards of its provisions, and by reviewing academic standards and the quality of teaching and learning in each subject area.

A reliable way of judging a university is by the number of points (from a maximum of 24) it has been awarded by the QAA in the department of your interest. A university that has been awarded at least 22 out of 24 points may be rated as excellent.

All our Universities are funded by the Government of UK and they are subject to stringent checking. They enjoy a high reputation of education and are the leading Universities in UK.
