New guide published for HEIs, to help improve information for prospective students

HEFCE has published a guide for higher education providers on the information they should publish to help prospective students make decisions about what and where to study.

The guide has been developed by the four UK higher education funding bodies in partnership with Universities UK, GuildHE, the Association of Colleges and the National Union of Students (NUS). It is relevant to all providers of higher education.

The suggested good practice takes account of the Competition and Markets Authority’s advice on consumer law. It covers the areas that the Review of Unistats and the Key Information Set indicated should be made available in detail on providers’ websites and linked to from Unistats, rather than collected and published centrally.

The guide will help students access detailed and contextualised information, presented in a way that allows them to make appropriate course comparisons to inform their study choices.

You can find out more and access the guide on HEFCE's website.
