St George’s has received notification from the Office for Students (OfS) that we are amongst the first institutions in the country to be successfully registered as an English HE provider with the OfS.


We are registered in the ‘approved (fee cap)’ category, which is for all providers who wish to receive direct teaching or research grant funding and requires evidence of enhanced financial sustainability. We have met all initial conditions of registration.

According to the OfS website, being registered enables St George’s to:

• access public grants, such as government funding for teaching or research
• access student support funding (in other words, its students can get government loans)
• apply for or maintain a licence to recruit international students
• apply for the right to award its own degrees
• apply for the right to call itself a university.

In addition, our Access and Participation Plan has been approved by the Office for Students, allowing us to charge fees above the basic amount.
