The Higher Education Academy was formed in October 2004 to "work with the higher education community to enhance all aspects of the student experience". It aims to promote high quality learning and teaching through the development and transfer of good practices in all subject disciplines, and to provide a 'one-stop shop' of learning and teaching resources and information for the HE community. The UKCME is part of the Higher Education Academy's subject centre network that consists of 24 subject centres based in higher education institutions throughout the UK.
