Blog: Worth the Wonga?

There’s been a huge amount of press about Value for Money in higher education recently, but what does getting ‘value for money’ actually mean for you?

The government has set up the Office for Students (OfS) as the new government-approved regulator for the higher education sector in England from 1 April 2018. The OfS want to ensure that universities are providing the best service they can to those who benefit from them and, specifically, that ‘all students, from all backgrounds, receive value for money’.

But what does this mean for me?

Royal Holloway Students’ Union has been working hard over the last six months to ensure that we’re effectively representing your academic interests. This latest survey sees us partnering with a number of other Students’ Unions to undertake this valuable piece of research, which will directly feedback to the OfS.

Value for Money is a notoriously difficult concept to measure – that’s why we need your help to try and decipher what that might look like for students – both past and present.
