New universities to deliver more choice
17 May 2016
The government has now said it will press ahead with proposals to make it easier for ‘challenger institutions’ to award their own degrees. The plans will also give students more information about teaching standards and job prospects to help them make better informed decisions about what and where to study.
The measures follow the government’s steps last year to end student number controls.
On top of making it easier for new providers to secure university title status and award degrees, all universities will be required to publish detailed information about application, offer and progression rates, broken down by gender, ethnicity and disadvantage.
Employment and graduate earnings data will be provided to prospective students.
There will also be a new regulator on campus. The government is establishing the Office for Students (OFS) for all higher education providers.
