Deadlines and forward look

This page outlines current deadlines and takes a forward look at upcoming consultations, guidance and other publications.

This list is not exhaustive and dates are subject to change. It will be updated regularly.

Deadlines

Transparency returns: The requirement to submit transparency information in April 2020 is suspended, and we are withdrawing the requirement to do so that was set out in the F1 Notice issued on 19 February 2020.

Instead, we will draw on HESA and ILR data to publish a reduced set of transparency information during this period. For providers that have already made a submission we will not undertake any further work on this or require any further information.

The requirement to publish transparency information in June 2020 is suspended.

See more information about regulatory requirements during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
