City College Norwich has been told that the academic standards of its higher education programme meet UK expectations.

About 1,000 of the college's 10,000 students are on higher education courses, validated by the University of East Anglia.

Inspectors from the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education reviewed the college in December 2014, but the report's publication was delayed until this week after the college appealed a finding that 'the enhancement of student learning opportunities at the college requires improvement to meet UK expectations'. The appeal was rejected.

The report also found the quality of student learning opportunities, and the quality of information about learning opportunities, met UK expectations.

It recommended the college monitored and evaluated how it engaged with students, completed its student charter with full involvement from students, and ensured its complaints and appeals procedures for students were clear and accessible.

These include the full implementation of an higher education student charter and the roll-out of our enhanced academic appeals and complaints procedures, both of which were developed with the support of our student body.'
