Wider Information Set

At Bishop Grosseteste University, we are committed to making it easy for prospective and current students and the general public to access information about our University.

The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) has specified the information that they expect higher education providers to make available online or by request. The following information forms part of what HEFCE has described as a Wider Information Set (WIS).

The wider information has two purposes:

  • To provide information about HE to a wide variety of audiences including: prospective and current students, students’ parents and advisers, employers, the media, and the institution itself;
  • To form part of the evidence used within quality assurance reviews.
