The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has commissioned CFE (www.cfe.org.uk) and the British Accreditation Council (www.the-bac.org) to provide a comprehensive picture of provision by alternative institutions operating in the UK higher education (HE) sector.
BIS recognise that the nature of privately funded provision is complex and dynamic, and are keen to develop a more comprehensive understanding of this part of the UK HE sector. This research will incorporate a mapping exercise to compile a list of UK privately funded HE providers, along with surveys of institutions and students to compile a detailed understanding of these privately funded providers and the students who enrol with them.
If you represent an alternative provider of higher education and have not yet been contacted regarding the study or would like to register your institution’s early interest in being involved in the research, please contact Tristram.Hughes@cfe.org.uk.
