RSS standards

The RSS accreditation process is relevant for those institutions offering programmes at Graduate and Masters level. The standards at levels 6 and 7 relate to QAA benchmarks at that level, but are designed to fit to a wide range of programmes, delivered in different ways.

Standards for level 6 of the Qualifications Framework

Standards for level 7 of the Qualifications Framework

We are in the process of developing standards at level 4/5 with a view to extending the accreditation service to cover Foundation degree programmes, and joint honours degrees which develop statistical knowledge and skills at this level.

In addition, an endorsement process is being developed which will enable the RSS to recognise good practice in programmes which develop statistical literacy at lower levels of the qualifications framework.  If you are interested in being involved in developments in this area, please contact us.
