QAA and the University of London31 January 2006, PR 10/06
A team of auditors from the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) visited the University of London in June 2005 to carry out an institutional audit, the results of which were published on 30 January 2006.
The QAA assessment of the University of London will, however, have no practical impact on King's College London. As indicated in the QAA report, the assessment does not relate in any way to the quality of programmes offered by King's (or any other College of the University): indeed, in its own recent (2004) QAA audit, King's received the highest rating. King's is currently applying for its own degree-awarding powers, which would be exercised within the context of this pre-existing system of externally recognised quality control.
King's College LondonKing's College London is one of the two oldest and largest colleges of the University of London with over 13,800 undergraduate students and nearly 5,700 postgraduates in nine schools of study. It is a member of the Russell Group: a coalition of the UK's major research-based universities. The College has had 24 of its subject-areas awarded the highest rating of 5* and 5 for research quality, demonstrating excellence at an international level, and it has recently received an excellent result in its audit by the Quality Assurance Agency.
King's is in the top group of UK universities for research earnings, with income from grants and contracts of £100 million, and has an annual turnover of more than £348 million. In 2004 the College was once again awarded an AA- financial credit rating from Standard & Poor's.
