This consultation ran from October to December 2017. The government sought to attain views on behalf of the new Office for Students (OfS) regarding the regulation of the higher education sector. The OfS was in the process of introducing a new regulatory framework: a risk-based approach to higher education with an unflinching focus on the student.
This consultation sets out the proposed new regulatory approach and what this will mean for the sector and students. It includes proposals for how higher education providers will enter the system, how they will be risk-assessed, the conditions they will have to meet, how they will be monitored, and what potential actions the OfS will be able to take.
