What is the OfS Register?
The Register lists all the English higher education providers registered by the OfS.
It is a single, authoritative reference about a provider’s regulatory status.
We have published a guide to registration and further information about different aspects of how we regulate.
What does it show?
Each provider on the Register has its own page, which covers:
If a provider is registered with the OfS or if it had been registered but has since chosen to deregister.
- Other organisations covered
If its registration covers other organisations.
- Trading names
If the provider has different names under which it trades.
- Tuition fee limits
If the provider can charge fees to undergraduate students and the statutory fee limit that applies.
- Teaching excellence
If the provider has received a rating through the Teaching Excellence and Outcomes Framework (the TEF).
- Awarding degrees
If the provider has the power to award degrees and at what level.
- University title
If the provider has the right to use 'university' in its name, when this was granted and how.
- Access and participation
If the provider has any plans which set out how it will improve equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups to access, succeed in and progress from higher education.
- Specific ongoing conditions of registration
If the provider has any specific ongoing conditions of registration, we make these available through the provider's entry.
