Improving student's ability to make the right choices about higher education for them

The Office for Students (OfS) is currently developing their strategy for improving information, advice and guidance about higher education. As part of this work, they are exploring the development of a new resource to support students with their decision making.

The stipulated aims from the OfS are to: 

  • collaborate with a range of partners to improve and join up our advice and guidance work more effectively, to ensure that all different student groups are provided for and the full range of higher education study options are promoted.
  • deliver a new national online information resource that would both provide authoritative, accurate information about higher education and signpost to other sources of information. This would be launched in 2019.
