Annual Quality Report (AQR)

The Annual Quality Report (AQR) is a requirement of Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI) and is part of the Cyclical Review Policy for Higher Education Institutions.

The AQR is an annual report about internal quality assurance that institutions provide to QQI.  The AQR template has been developed with reference to the ENQA (the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education) European Standards and Guidelines, upon which QQI's Core Statutory Quality Assurance Guidelines are based. You can find out more about the AQR process on the QQI website or by clicking on the image below.


The Annual Quality Reports (AQR) for Trinity are published on the QQI website:

AIQR 2017 (with respect to the period 1 September 2015 - 31 August 2016)

AIQR 2018 (with respect to the period 1 September 2016 - 31 August 2017)

AIQR 2019 (with respect to the period 1 September 2017 - 31 August 2018)

AIQR 2020 (with respect to the period 1 September 2018 - 31 August 2019)

AQR 2021 (with respect to the period 1 September 2019 - 31 August 2020)

The AQR is in two parts:

  • Part 1 meets QQI requirements under S29 of the QQI Act and outlines the institutional quality assurance procedures. It acts as a centralised resource for Trinity approved policies and procedures in compliance with the QQI Core Statutory Requirements and European Standards Guidelines. It is a useful resource for Schools, programmes or administrative areas undergoing professional or statutory body or professional registration body reviews.
  • Parts 2-6 of the AQR have a focus on quality review and quality enhancement.
