University programmes are also subject to review and accreditation by relevant Professional and Statutory Regulatory Bodies, including Ofsted, the Health Professions Council and the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

The University of Hertfordshire underwent Institutional Audit by QAA in 2004, Collaborative Provision Audit in 2006, and was audited again in 2009.

Findings of the audits were that broad confidence can be placed in:
