This guidance sets out the criteria and process for higher education providers seeking to apply for either university title or university college title.
It updates and supersedes the criteria and guidance set out in:
- ‘Applications for the grant taught degree awarding powers, research degree awarding powers and university title’ (August 2004)
- ‘Guidance on the process and criteria for assessing student numbers and good governance for university title and university college title for non-HEFCE funded organisations’ (November 2012)
It applies to higher education providers in England only.
