Allegations concerning institutions funded by HEFCW

We cannot become involved in disputes between students or staff and their institutions. However, we may become involved in issues about whether the funds we allocate are being properly used.

HEFCW occasionally receives allegations of financial irregularity or impropriety, mismanagement, waste, or fraud in higher education institutions.
