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 The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.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.
We will be directly funding new publicly-funded providers of higher education from 2014-15. 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.
On 17 October 2013, higher education managers and staff with responsibility for data management attended a workshop.
This focused on:
|1000||Welcome, introduction, and background|
|1015||Overview of requirements of HEFCE-funded institutions|
|1100||Introduction to Funding|
|1200||Introduction to the student number control|
|1345||Higher Education in Further Education Students (HEIFES) Survey – Introductory training (part 1)|
