Many of HEFCE's functions will be continued by the Office for Students, the new regulator of higher education in England, and Research England, the new council within UK Research and Innovation.

The HEFCE domain - - 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.

What are the events about?

Have you ever considered joining the Board of a higher/further education institution or on a non-executive body in another sector? Were you not quite sure what it entailed or wondered what the commitment would be, and, just as importantly, whether you could make a contribution? 

These events showcase why it is crucial that more women join boards. Join us at one of our receptions, jointly hosted with Women on Boards UK.

Registration and refreshments will be available from 5.30pm with the discussions starting promptly at 6.15pm. The event will close at 8.00pm. More information is available for each of the dates:

There is a fee of £45 for these events.
