Like any higher education provider, University Centre Somerset is audited by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). This provides an objective measure of our standards, bringing peace of mind about the quality of our teaching and learning.
In its last audits of Bridgwater College and Somerset College, both in 2014, the QAA identified a number of areas of best practice.
These include the support we provide students in moving into higher education and then onto the workplace, as well as the close links we have with employers and their engagement in the design of new programmes to meet professional and technical skills needs, and our emphasis on employability.
The findings of both reviews identify the distinguishing feature of University Centre Somerset: our programmes focus on preparing you for the future. Study here, and you’ll receive a top-quality education from a leading UK institution, as well as enhancing your career prospects through extensive experience of your chosen professional environment.
