Universities UK response to the Office for Students consultation on registration fees and other fees

Universities UK supports an Office for Students that will protect the interests of students and the reputation of the higher education sector as part of a co-regulatory system.

A fee-based approach to OfS funding will be an opportunity to strengthen accountability to the sector for the costs of regulation. However, as the costs of the OfS will also indirectly fall on students, fees and funding should be value for money, be sustainable and proportionate as well as transparent and equitable.
