THE University of Chichester has become one of the first in the country to be awarded a quality mark with the Quality Assurance Agency.
The quality mark is a symbol that its academic standards have met the rigorous expectations laid down by the independent agency for standards and quality in higher education.
To be permitted to use the new quality mark, universities have to demonstrate a high quality of their student learning through an review conducted by the QAA.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Clive Behagg said: ‘We are delighted to be among the first in the country to be able to display this quality mark, an easily recognisable badge of excellence for UK universities around the world.
‘In an increasingly competitive market, it is important that prospective students are aware of our reputation for delivering high quality education, and this new quality mark is another way to make us stand out from the crowd as a student-focused institution.’
