This page reports on the follow-up of the 2017-18 access agreements and the funding of student bonuses. When the time comes, we will issue guidance on the new approach to monitoring and responding to access and participation plans. It is based on the annual monitoring visits submitted by suppliers in January 2019. The Fair Access Office is closed on 31 March 2018 and responsibility for the access to higher education system is transferred to the Office for Students An access agreement has been a document explaining how a university or higher education institution receiving higher fees intends to ensure and promote equitable access to higher education through public relations, financial support, etc. It also contains goals and milestones defined by the university itself. Many access agreements remained in place after the closure of of the OFFA and continued to be regulated by the Office for Students. These objectives have been achieved primarily through the implementation of approved access agreements and by OFFA`s work in monitoring access agreements and disseminating their vision of best practice. The Office for Fair Access has ceased operations and responsibility for regulating equitable access to higher education in England rests with the Office for Students from 1 April 2018. For general questions regarding monitoring results, please contact Jennifer Allen, Access and Participation Manager at [email protected]. All bidders with an access agreement set outcome targets for each stage of the life cycle: this scheme allowed higher education institutions to collect tuition fees of $0 to $3,000. (These ceilings were raised in 2010.
At the time this policy was debated, there was a great fear that the level of debt that new graduates of higher education would face could prevent some potential students from starting higher education. Thus, as part of the debate, the government decided to set up a regulator to ensure that higher education institutions were working to ensure that these measures did not occur. The Act defined the position of Director of Equitable Access to Higher Education and the support body OFFA and gave the Director the power to prevent a $1,200 fee if she was unable to respond to the regulator that she would take appropriate steps to expand access and encourage participation. All English universities and higher education institutions that wanted to impose higher fees must have approved « access agreements » by the Director of Fair Access to Higher Education.
