Wider Information Sets

Writtle University College is committed to making it easier for prospective and current students and the wider public to access publicly available information about the University. As part of the Wider Information Set (WIS) requirements as set out by Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), Writtle University College has made the individual documents publically available for students and the wider public. Please click on the relevant links at the bottom of this page to access the documents.

As set out by HEFCE, the WIS will:

  • inform the public about the quality of HE, and in particular, help provide potential students with information that will help them make a choice about what and where to study
  • help provide evidence to contribute to quality assurance processes in institutions (specifically review by the QAA)
  • help provide information that institutions can use to enhance the quality of their HE provision.

In response to a request from HEFCE in March 2014 the college is required to publish a summary of financial information on its web site. Institutions were asked to work with student representatives to develop a clear and simple way of presenting information about income and expenditure. The information is taken directly from the colleges audited 2015-16 accounts and approved by the colleges Academic Board for publication.
