QAA praise for St John’s

05 October 2012

By a staff reporter

ST JOHN's College, Nottingham, has successfully passed an inspection by the agency that monitors quality and standards in university education. The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) found that the college met the required standards for the quality of education offered to students. It particularly praised library staff at the college for the extra support they offered to students.

Inspectors visited the college in June this year. They identified areas that needed improvement, including a quicker and more consistent return of marked work to students, and the growth of a better system of staff development. They also suggested that there should be more student representatives on college committees, and a review of tutorial arrangements to provide better access for students. Inspectors also confirmed that the college continued to comply with the Government's immigration regulations.

The Principal of St John's, the Revd Dr David Hilborn, said: "The outcome of the QAA review reaffirms St John's reputation as a high-quality provider of education, research, and formation in Christian theology and ministry."
