Nationally-set indicators provide a framework for quality enhancement.

Indicators of Enhancement contribute to the environment which supports the enhancement of higher education in Scotland.

They have been developed by a group of external organisations concerned with the enhancement of the student experience.

The latest version of the Indicators of Enhancement document is available to download from the Enhancement Themes website.


Indicators of Enhancement set out a framework with the indicators themselves, and a set of accompanying questions designed to facilitate reflection at all levels, from the individual up to the national:

  • Where are we now?
  • Where do we want to be in the future?
  • How are we going to get there?
  • How will we know when we get there?


These ten Indicators of Enhancement are embedded in the University’s reflection, procedures and activities.
