COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – support and guidance

Quality and Standards Review for providers applying to register with the Office for Students (OfS) is the method we use to provide evidence to the OfS about whether providers meet the Core practices of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education.


The OfS will confirm with each provider during the registration process if a Quality and Standards Review is required.


The guidance on this page is for providers applying to register with the OfS.


Separate guidance is available for providers already registered with the OfS.
