OfS communications in the pre-election period

As a non-departmental public body, the Office for Students is subject to Cabinet Office guidelines during the pre-election period. This means that, until the general election on 4 July 2024, we will be publishing less content than usual.

We will continue with our regulatory work during this time, but our communications activities will be restricted.

We will not launch consultations, issue analysis reports, host public events, publish information about funding or issue guidance to higher education providers which constitutes new policy.

We do not expect to publish press releases, and will not offer comment on higher education issues to either written or broadcast media.

Our public enquiries team will continue to answer queries from members of the public and students, and our press office will be able to offer factual responses to specific questions from journalists.

We will continue to update our website for accuracy or with essential factual information.
