Blended learning and OfS regulation

Last updated: 17 February 2023

Following the publication of revised conditions of registration relating to the quality of courses which came into force on 1 May 2022, we announced a review of blended learning in higher education.

In May 2022, Professor Susan Orr was appointed to lead the review. The OfS also appointed a panel of academic experts to explore different higher education providers’ approaches to blended learning.

The OfS response to the review panel’s report sets out how the themes identified by the panel relate to our regulatory requirements. We have published extracts on these pages - read the summary and discussion of its themes
