The OfS’s primary objective is to ensure that English higher education is delivering positive outcomes for students.
Our work in quality and standards will support the following regulatory objectives:
- that all students, from all backgrounds, and with the ability and desire to undertake higher education, receive a high quality academic experience, with their interests protected while they study (or in the event a provider, campus or course closes)
- that all students are able to progress into employment or further study, and their qualifications hold value over time.
We expect providers to maintain the quality of academic experience they offer to students. Similarly, students can expect that the qualification they gain is reliable, has been rigorously assessed, and is comparable to similar qualifications offered by other institutions.
