Franchise partnerships

When a lead provider, or the franchisor, enters into a franchise agreement with another provider, or the franchisee, the lead provider holds responsibility for all aspects of Student Finance. Please refer to our updated guidance to ensure you’re well placed to deliver your franchised courses effectively.

PT UG and PGM NI course collection

It's time to submit your part-time undergraduate courses and postgraduate master's courses for Northern Ireland students on our Courses Management Service (CMS). You should complete your course submission by Friday 19 April 2024.

LLE guidance

When the Lifelong Learning Entitlement (LLE) launches, it will change the way providers set their tuition fee limits. The government has set limits on what they can charge students for tuition. Launching in 2025, the LLE will transform the post-18 student finance system in England. DfE’s guidance explains how tuition fee limits will change for the LLE.
