As a recognised Higher Education Provider offering courses awarded by the University of East London and Liverpool John Moores University, we are reviewed by the UK’s quality body for Higher Education, the Higher Education Quality Assurance Agency.

The QAA is an independent body entrusted with monitoring and advising on standards and quality in UK higher education.

CAT underwent a review by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) in 2017. The following judgements were made about the standards and quality of the Graduate School of the Environment at CAT on their visit:

  • The maintenance of the academic standards of awards offered on behalf of degree-awarding bodies and/or other awarding organisations meets UK expectations
  • The quality of student learning opportunities at the provider is commended
  • The quality of the information about learning opportunities meets UK expectations
  • The enhancement of student learning opportunities at the provider is commended
