Registration decision

The Office for Students has refused the registration application of British Institute of Technology Ltd, following a rigorous process of assessment and evaluation.

The application has been refused because the initial conditions of registration, as set out in our regulatory framework, have not been satisfied.

The OfS has decided that British Institute of Technology Ltd does not satisfy the following initial conditions of registration:

  • Initial Condition C3: Student protection plan
  • Initial Condition D: Financial viability and sustainability
  • Initial Condition E2: Management and governance.

Further information  

The OfS did not reach a decision about whether one other condition of registration was satisfied. This was:  

  • Initial Condition B3: Quality (student outcomes).

A decision about this condition was not reached because other initial conditions, as set out above, were not considered to be satisfied. 

The provider has no current higher education students. See further details of the reasons for refusal.

For any further information, contact Richard Foord on 0117 905 7676 or [email protected].


  1. Conditions of registration are the primary tool that the OfS uses to regulate individual higher education providers. They are minimum requirements that providers must meet in order to be/stay registered with us, because they demonstrate that the provider is able to offer high quality higher education to students. 
  2. Our conditions are set out in detail in our regulatory framework.
