IHE Roundtable for the OfS's call for evidence on its approach to public grant funding

The OfS has launched a call for evidence on the approach to public funding for higher education providers. It is seeking views on: the activities funded, how funding allocations are determined, and factors that are prioritised in decision-making. It is likely that this call for evidence will shape the OfS’s approach for the medium-term, and so will be of interest to both those already registered in the Approved (fee cap) category, and those considering OfS registration in the coming years.

To respond to the call for evidence, IHE needs member input on how the current approach impacts you. Perhaps you were able to use capital grant funding to grow your provision. Or does your financial modelling rely on accelerated courses being funded as high-cost courses? What if this were to change under LLE?

We are also seeking your views on the future: what should be funded that isn’t - perhaps the allied health courses attracting funding need redefining to be fit for purpose? How should student-based funding be distributed? What would best support your student population to succeed? Join this event to hear more about the call for evidence, provide your views on these questions, and more, to shape our response to the OfS.
