We regulate fee levels at higher education providers, ensure a framework is in place for assessing the quality of higher education and scrutinise the performance of designated providers.
HEFCW has specific regulatory duties relating to:
Only institutions with automatic designation or specific designation will have their courses eligible for student support.
Any institution that wishes for its full-time undergraduate courses to be automatically designated for student support must submit a fee and access plan to HEFCW.
The Quality Assessment Framework for Wales assures us of the quality of education at HE providers.
