Professional, statutory and regulatory bodies: an exploration of their engagement with higher education

Report
1 March 2011

HEBRG examined the longstanding challenges in defining professional, statutory and regulatory bodies (PSRBs) and how they work with higher education.

It has reviewed estimations of the impact of engagement with PSRBs and initiatives that have considered PSRBs within the larger framework of higher education regulation. 

This report, published in March 2011, identifies the main areas of engagement and highlights their importance within the context of the complex and rapidly evolving regulatory framework for higher education.

A better understanding of these engagements will be useful as the sector looks to function efficiently and effectively in a new regulatory landscape and under increased financial pressure.
