Approach to OfS public grant funding

16 May 2024

The OfS initiated a call for evidence as it is considers how it should use funding made available to it by the Government to benefit students, taxpayers and the higher education sector.

It sought views about how the organisation could develop its funding approach in three broad areas:the activities it funds; how funding allocations are determined; and the factors that should be prioritised in decision making.

MillionPlus urges the OfS to ensure that future public grant allocations follow the principles below:

  • Support student access and participation.
  • Support student choice.
  • Future-proof a diverse set of provision.
  • Deliver a joined-up approach.
  • Ensure agility to emerging challenges.
