Coronavirus briefing note

Information, advice and guidance for prospective students

Working with universities, colleges and other stakeholders, the Office for Students (OfS) is producing a series of briefing notes on the steps universities and colleges are taking to support their students during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The notes do not represent regulatory advice or guidance – their focus is on sharing ideas and responses, and signposting to further information. In particular, providers should read the OfS’s regulatory guidance on consumer protection published in June 2020.

The briefing notes reflect current information as at date of publication in a rapidly evolving situation.

This briefing note looks at how universities, colleges and others are responding to the challenges of delivering high-quality information, advice and guidance to prospective students through different channels, especially in the context of imminent decision deadlines.
