Notes that expansion of academic quality audit methodologies within higher education institutions is a significant recent development in UK quality assurance, reflecting a shift to more dynamic processes to support self‐regulation. Describes the range of current practice encountered in a survey of 25 higher education providers and offers a series of simple conceptual frameworks that help explain the nature of internal audit processes. A companion article explores the potential of internal academic quality audit for contributing to a national quality assurance framework.
