HEFCE closed at the end of March 2018. The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.

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.

We received 153 responses to the call for evidence. The full set of responses is provided here, alongside a document summarising the content and a letter sent to the Right Honourable Greg Clark MP, then the Minister for Universities and Science, which provides an update on progress of the project.
