The latest circulars, consultations, guidance and reports.

We aim to be as open as possible about our activities, informing the higher education (HE) sector in Wales of our decisions through circulars and newsletters, and seeking opinions on a wide range of issues in consultation documents.


HEFCW circulars are aimed at the higher education (HE) sector in Wales. They might include information such as funding allocations; guidance; information, data or monitoring requests; consultations; calls for strategies; policy announcements; and particular information which higher education institutions (HEIs) need to be aware of quickly.
