Notes

  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.
  3. Where the OfS’s decision relates to the quality of a provider’s courses or the outcomes achieved for its students, this concerns only its higher education provision.
