Degree programme accreditation report and scorecard

This new report designed for higher education course accreditors includes bespoke analysis giving a complete overview of students studying your profession at UK universities.

Expert analysts group the courses you currently accredit together and benchmark them against non-accredited comparators in key areas to aid your decision making. The accompanying scorecard offers detailed, course-level analysis using a range of metrics to support your programme accreditation strategy.
