HEFCE corporate planning
English higher education is changing as the Government reforms the way the sector is funded and regulated. The documents below describe how we plan to approach the challenges and opportunities of this change over the next few years, as illustrated in the diagram:
- we have identified a number of key principles - opportunity, choice and excellence - that will inform our work over the coming years
- our priorities are to continue to support the core academic activities: learning and teaching, research and knowledge exchange
- the ways in which we will deliver our objectives - our practices - will include an emphasis on high-quality information; a proportionate approach to regulation; investment for public benefit; and a commitment to working in partnership with government, students, universities, colleges, and key national agencies.
Our role in safeguarding the collective interests of students runs through all of our work.
Our strategy statement gives a high-level overview of our objectives. Our business plan provides more details on our objectives and the key activities by which we will achieve them.
