Office for Students publishes new regulatory framework for HE in England

Date 05/03/2018

The Office for Students (OfS) has published its new regulatory framework, which describes how it intends to perform its various functions, and provides guidance for registered higher education providers on the conditions of registration.

The new framework confirms that QAA has been designated to carry out the quality and assessment functions set out in the Higher Education and Research Act 2017. The parameters within which QAA will operate in performing these functions will be set out in a designation agreement between the OfS and QAA.

You can read the regulatory framework and associated guidance on the Office for Students' website (PDF, 1.6MB).
