The 2018 Independendent Higher Education Survey is now live!

The annual Independent Higher Education survey is now live and is open for responses until 14 october 2018.

We would very much the support of all independent providers, an increasingly important part of the UK’s HE landscape, in completing this short survey.

Last year’s survey was a great success, with responses from over 100 providers helping us to bring together an accurate picture of the sector at a time of significant change. This year’s survey will ask how things have changed in the new regulatory environment and will dive into providers’ concerns, priorities and plans for the future. The resulting report will be publicly available, launching at our annual conference in November, and we will use the information you provide to inform our policy positions and lobbying priorities, as well as the services we provide to members and the wider sector. We will also share anonymised data with selected and trusted partners such as the OfS, QAA, and other key stakeholders, to help them better understand the independent sector.

This year we have partnered with QAA to produce the survey, and would like to thank them for their ongoing support.

The survey should take you no more than 20 minutes and we would greatly appreciate your support in completing it as fully as possible. You can save your responses and return to the survey later by clicking ‘Save and Continue Later’ in the bottom right hand corner of your screen at any time. If you have any questions on the survey, please get in touch with us at
