Accreditation of Higher Education in the UK: The rise of PSRBs & potential influences

Authors: Williams, C. and Polkinghorne, M.

This poster provides a graphical illustration of data collected to identify when Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies (PSRB’s) that accredit UK undergraduate degrees began their accreditation programmes. PSRB’s were identified from data held by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and contacted individually to establish when they began accrediting, leading to the collation of a unique set of figures that can be archived. The data is shown alongside the growth of HE institutions in the same period and key events that may have impacted on their numbers.
