Standardisation events

UAL Awarding Body's standardisation events allow centres to discuss and agree the national standards for pass, merit and distinction grades across qualifications. Each academic year we hold three standardisation events per subject area* - one in the North of England, one in the South of England and one in Wales.

*Fashion Business and Retail will only have one standardisation event in the Autumn in London.
