  • Office for students—countdown to operation
  • Original news
  • When taken together—and assuming no major amendments at the close of the consultation process—do the consultations provide an adequate framework to start implementing the reforms set out in HERA 2017? Will the new OfS be ready to operate from 1 April 2018, as suggested?
  • Is this consultation process sufficient to address the concerns raised during passage of the Bill through Parliament?
  • When announcing the consultations, Jo Johnson made much of the need to preserve freedom of speech in universities. Do the proposals contained in the consultations go far enough to achieve that ambition?
  • How does Jo Johnson’s statement on the importance of freedom of speech on campus sit with government whip Chris Heaton-Harris’ request to universities to supply details of professors teaching European affairs ‘with particular reference to Brexit’, plus copies of their syllabus and links to online lectures?
