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 The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.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 Government is taking forward a number of initiatives to meet its goal of creating ‘a democracy that works for everyone’. HEFCE has been invited to assist the Government in achieving this goal by encouraging higher education providers in their efforts to improve student registration levels further, including through sharing of good practice.
