We invited applications from providers to join the HEFCE-funded sector from 2014-15 as the Government has changed regulations on access to student support. From 2014-15, only publicly-funded providers that are in a funding relationship with HEFCE will continue to be automatically designated for student support.
Social and cultural impacts have now been added, alongside economic criteria, as major factors in allocating research grants for UK higher education institutions (HEIs) under the Research Excellence Framework (REF), the new system for assessing the quality of HEI research due for completion next year.

All UK universities offering postgraduate programmes value postgraduate students for their contribution to the intellectual and cultural capital of the institutions and postgraduates are an essential part of the global workforce and the economy. Yet it is becoming increasingly difficult for universities to recruit to both taught and research postgraduate degrees and current statistics show that applications for postgraduate study in the UK have decreased.
This workshop, jointly hosted by HEFCE and UKCGE, will explore barriers to postgraduate study from different perspectives.
In May 2013, HEFCE published a consultation on the future operation of student number control flexibility from 2014-15 onwards, the entry of new publicly-funded providers of higher education into the student number control system, and changes to the high-grades policy to exempt a limited number of combinations of qualification types from the student number control.
