All providers of Higher Education in England are required to publish student transfer arrangements in accordance with the Higher Education Research Act 2017 and Office for Students Regulatory Framework 2018. A student transfer is defined within Section 38 of the Higher Education and Research Act.
The purpose of this Policy is to set out the necessary institutional arrangements that enable a student to transfer in a manner that facilitates the continuation and quality of study for all students whenever a transfer occurs.
The Policy informs the College’s staff and students of the principles governing student transfer and ensures compliance with key regulations/policies within the
College including, Admissions, Assessment, Fees and Charges, Recognition of Prior Learning, Student Protection Plan and UKVI Tier 4 Compliance.
It is the College’s aim to ensure that students are able to continue on their current courses wherever possible.”
Our Student Protection plan sets out what students can expect to happen should a course, campus, or institution close. The purpose of the plan is to ensure that our students can continue and complete their studies, or can be compensated, if this is not possible.
All higher education providers registered with the Office for Students (OfS) must have a student protection plan in place.
