London, May 13 (IBNS) International students have another assurance that studying at the University of Birmingham will give them a top quality education, after a leading watchdog gave top marks to teaching and employment opportunities.

The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) has commended the University for both the quality and enhancement of its student learning opportunities. 
 
The QAA is the independent body entrusted with monitoring, and advising on, standards and quality in UK higher education.  A commendation is the highest rating possible and is confirmed in a QAA report on the quality and standards of provision offered at Birmingham.

QAA reviewers visited the University earlier this year and praised nine areas of good practice in their report, including the high value placed on teaching and sustained engagement with employers, and made no recommendations for improvement.

David Eastwood, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Birmingham, said: “We are absolutely delighted that this report reinforces our commitment to offering outstanding teaching alongside world-class research. The review confirms Birmingham’s strength in developing and delivering high quality programmes that unlock a wide-range of opportunities for our students."

“The recognition for our engagement with employers and work to enhance employment opportunities for our students and graduates also reflect our recognition as University of the Year for Graduate Employment," Eastwood said.

The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) works with higher education institutions to define, safeguard, and improve academic standards and the quality of higher education in the UK.
