Quality Assurance

The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) is an independent body that audits the quality of UK higher education through institutional reviews.   The reviews look at the way each Higher Education Institution (HEI) manages its own quality assurance activities and assures its own academic standards. The process is aimed at ensuring that HEIs are providing higher education, awards and qualifications of an acceptable quality and an appropriate academic standard; and exercising their legal powers to award degrees in a proper manner.   The University of Buckingham voluntarily takes part in this institutional review process. See Quality and Standards for more information.

International Recognition of the Clinical MD in General Internal Medicine from the University of Buckingham

University of Buckingham degrees carry the same recognition internationally as degrees from any UK university. However, country by country recognition of UK degrees depends upon the local regulations of that country, over which universities have no jurisdiction.  Obtaining clarification on the recognition of the course in other countries is the responsibility of the applicant/student.
