A number of data streams underpin the HEFCE Register and determine the powers of a provider, how they are regulated and whether students can access student finance. These draw on different partner organisations. These organisations provide us with information, and we update the Register within 7 days.

Can I change information on the HEFCE Register?
Providers cannot change the HEFCE Register directly, but they can change some of the sources feeding it.
Providers can update their names, addresses and website addresses online, through the UK Register of Learning Providers. The Register will reflect these changes within 7 days.
All other information about features and assurances come from the organisations listed above. To request a change to an item of information in the HEFCE Register, please contact the relevant organisation.
For comments about the way the site is laid out, or the language used, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org directly.
