Insight brief

A matter of principles: Regulating in the student interest

In autumn and winter 2020-21 the Office for Students (OfS) will be launching a series of consultations as we review and reset our regulatory requirements. This Insight brief sets the context for this work. It explores the idea of principles-based regulation, which is the predominant approach the OfS takes in its regulatory framework. It also looks at the risk-based approach we take to making regulatory decisions and how we are continuing to reduce the administrative burden for the universities and colleges we regulate.
