Data to inform funding
All higher education providers that are registered with the OfS in the Approved (fee cap) category for the academic year 2019‑20 (1 August 2019 – 31 July 2020) will be required to submit a data return in 2018-19. This will allow us to calculate OfS funding for 2019-20.
For more information see Funding for academic year 2019-20: Approach and data collection.
There are three different surveys we are using in 2018-19 to collect data from further education colleges, sixth form colleges or academies:
Data for transparency return
We also collect data from providers as part of the ongoing conditions of registration with the OfS. The Higher Education and Research Act 2017 (HERA) requires the OfS to ensure that the ongoing conditions of registration for certain providers includes a transparency condition. This mandatory condition will apply to all registered higher education providers in either the Approved or Approved (fee cap) part of the register.
