The University of Northampton are working in partnership with Bloomsbury Institute, UK. Bloomsbury Institute is a specialist institution in Bloomsbury, the academic heart of London, delivering full-time undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses in Business, Accounting and Finance, and Law.
Staff are required to understand the external frameworks and reference points which are applicable to the courses we deliver. Links to these external frameworks and reference points are provided, where relevant, within this Quality and Enhancement Manual.
We currently have a partnership with the University of Northampton to deliver undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
Our University partner has degree awarding powers and as such follows the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (FHEQ) which has been developed and is maintained by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). The Framework applies to all higher education degrees awarded by degree awarding bodies in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Staff are required to understand the principles set out in this Framework.
The Framework for Higher Education Qualifications is supported and contextualised by the “Subject Benchmark Statements”. As outlined by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), Subject Benchmark Statements set out expectations about the standards of degrees in a range of subject areas. They describe what gives a discipline its coherence and identity, and define what can be expected of a graduate in terms of the abilities and skills needed to develop understanding or competence in the subject. Staff are required to familiarise themselves with the relevant subject benchmark statements. Follow:
