The new Office for Students came into force earlier this year. It arrives with a fresh approach to HE regulation. The new framework will be student-focused and ensure institutional autonomy. Institutions must adapt to the new climate and improve outcomes for their students.

Join Westminster Briefing to hear from the Office for Students and receive an up-to-date briefing on the new landscape of HE regulation. You will consider the next steps and explore how other institutions are managing the transition.

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • Overview of the new Office for Students and changes to the HE landscape
  • Priorities for the new regulator
  • Retaining underlying principles of institutional autonomy & co-regulation
  • Giving students a voice and putting student choice at the heart of the new regime
  • Meeting your baseline requirements and understanding risk-based monitoring
  • Timescale for reform and next steps for the OfS
  • Updating institution policies and recalibrating your strategy
