Universities UK response to Office for Students consultation on the integrity and stability of the higher education sector in England

Front cover of UUK consultation responseUniversities are under extreme pressure as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic across all aspects of their operations and provision, including in admissions, and continue to respond effectively to the challenging environment faced by their students and staff. 

It is these extraordinary circumstances which resulted in the UK government agreeing to put in place a student stability measure for 2020–21 only, to ensure that no English provider recruits a number of home/EU students in a way that would threaten the stability of the higher education sector. It is in this context which UUK views the OfS itself as also having an appropriate role.
