This government recognises the importance of this area and is increasing the information available to students to ensure that they can make informed choices about what and where to study.</p><p>As set out in the department’s strategic guidance to the Office for Students (OfS), we expect them to play a key role in delivering our objectives to improve and support informed choice through the provision of effective information, advice and guidance to all students. In February, we asked the OfS to work with the HE sector to improve transparency so that students know what they should expect and can effectively challenge providers who do not deliver on their commitments.</p><p>In addition, we asked the OfS to consider how to increase the transparency and visibility of what students can expect to receive for their investment at different HE providers, by making Longitudinal Education Outcomes data more widely available such as through publication on Unistats, thereby enabling students to make the right choices for them.</p><p>Although we provide guidance for the OfS, we cannot instruct it to undertake any specific course of action as it is an independent arm’s length body.</p><p>The government will respond directly to the Education Select Committee on its HE value for money report recommendations in due course.</p><p> </p>

The three year residency period should not have been “wholly or mainly” for the purpose of receiving full time education. The requirements for home fee status where students are studying in England are broadly similar. There are some, limited exceptions to these general principles.</p><p>There are currently specific provisions in the rules that provide access to student support for persons who hold settled status in the UK and have left England to exercise a right of residence elsewhere in the Economic European Area (EEA) or Switzerland.</p><p>The rules on eligibility for student finance support for UK nationals who are currently residing in the EEA and Switzerland, and who commence courses in England after the UK has left the EU, are under consideration.</p>

star this property answer text <p>As announced by my right hon. Friend, the Prime Minister on 19 February, the government is conducting a major review across post-18 education and funding. The review will ensure that the system is giving every individual a genuine choice between high quality technical, vocational and academic routes, students and taxpayers are getting value for money, and employers can access the skilled workforce they need.</p><p> </p><p>Ensuring value for money for students, graduates and taxpayers is at the heart of the review. It will consider how students and graduates contribute to the cost of their studies, how we can ensure funding arrangements across post-18 education are transparent and do not act as barriers to choice or provision, and how best to promote institutional efficiency.</p><p> </p><p>The review is being supported by an independent panel, led by Philip Augar, and comprising experts from across post-18 education and the business world. The panel will publish their report at an interim stage, before the government concludes the overall review in early 2019.</p>

Prior to the responsibilities transferring to the OfS in April 2018, OFFA published a report on Access Agreements for 2018-19. The report indicates that 26 universities or colleges (13 per cent of those with access agreements) plan to charge £9,250 for all of their courses in the academic year 2018-19.</p> more like this
