Higher Education Funding Council for Wales


At the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales – HEFCW – we regulate fee levels at higher education (HE) institutions, ensure a framework is in place for assessing the quality of higher education and scrutinise the performance of universities and other designated providers. We use resources from the Welsh Government and others to secure higher education learning and research of the highest quality, and make the most of the contribution of HE to Wales's culture, society and economy.

At HEFCW, we strive to be an exemplar organisation, true to our values, where equality, diversity and inclusion, well-being and health, collaboration and sustainability are fundamental principles. 

HEFCW is a Disability Confident and Living Wage accredited employer.  We are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive workplace and we particularly encourage LGBTQ+ applicants, disabled applicants and those from an ethnic minority background, who are currently under-represented at HEFCW.
