HEFCE closed at the end of March 2018. The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.
The HEFCE domain - www.hefce.ac.uk - will continue to function until September 2018. At this point we will close the site entirely and all its information will only be available from the National Web Archive.
The Academy will achieve this goal through:
The work of the Academy seeks to help employers, graduate physicists and the wider economy. It will support the significant contribution physics-based businesses make to the economy by addressing the deficit of suitably qualified graduates and postgraduates they often report. It will also help undergraduate physicists to understand the range of employment opportunities that are available.
The Academy will extend to a number of partner universities, such as Hull, Bradford and Leeds to share best practice and to identify common problems that can be better addressed through a consortium-based approach. Sharing of best practice and exchange of information will also be extended to the wider higher education sector.
