Disruption to students caused by industrial action

Briefing note for higher education providers

The purpose of this briefing note is to set out the Office for Students’ approach to disruption for students caused by industrial action at registered providers.

It does not impose new requirements beyond those set out in the regulatory framework. Instead, it highlights particular existing regulatory requirements that providers should consider when addressing the disruption of industrial action. It also summarises providers’ obligations under consumer protection law.
