Quality Assurance Agency for High Education recognises ULaw’s commitment to highest quality of legal education11 December 2015
The University of Law (ULaw) has been recognised by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAAHE) for its “comprehensive action plan” to provide the highest quality of legal education and support to students as they enter the legal profession, that has seen the university go “well beyond its features of good practice and recommendations” following an institutional audit earlier this year.
ULaw’s continued dedication to offering a comprehensive programme of career and employability support structures to its students has been recognised in the report. Feedback from students revealed that ULaw’s virtual learning environment and careers support is highly valued, with students praising the ability to measure their own progress and receive support when needed, as well as being able to access to streamed live lectures for online courses.
The agency also commented that, “ULaw is committed to a yearly action plan and a rigorous institutional framework for assessment in a number of policies, including assessment, marking and accreditation of prior learning.”
Professor Andrea Nollent, Provost and Chief Academic Officer ULaw, said: “Since its foundation, The University of Law has been committed to delivering a world-class standard of legal education and preparation for a legal career. We are constantly upgrading courses and practices to ensure that students are supported in whatever way possible and to have such efforts recognised by a nation-wide agency speaks volumes of our commitment to constant improvement.”
The Student Engagement Policy, Student Charter and appointment of its first Student officer in 2013 are among the many deliberate steps that ULaw has taken to engage its students. This has led to an appreciation of its many offerings, in particular its virtual learning environment and careers support, which help ensure maximum enhancement of students’ educational experience.
By submitting an annual monitoring report, enrolment completion and results data to the Solicitors Regulation Authority for both the GDL and LPC programmes, ULaw has successfully aligned all its academic related policies with the relevant chapters of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education. As such, students have a great appreciation for ULaw’s many offerings which focus on ensuring maximum enhancement of students’ educational experience.
The high-quality standard of education is uniform among all of ULaw’s eight centres and with the Policy Review Project 2012-14 and the Policy Compliance Project 2014-15, the University has demonstrated thorough institutional monitoring and enhancement.
