First higher education institution is stripped access to student loans amid concerns over low quality degrees

The first higher education institution has been stripped of its access to student loans amid concerns over low quality degrees. The Telegraph reports.

The Bloomsbury Institute, which is based in central London and run by a for-profit company, offers degrees in business, accountancy and law.

But the higher education watchdog, the Office for Students (OfS) announced on Thursday that it has refused the registration application of the institute, citing concerns about the “quality of student outcomes”.

Nick Hillman, director of the higher education policy institute, said this is likely to be the first of a “handful” of institutions that will have its application to register declined.
