Universities are independent, autonomous bodies. As such, they are responsible for their own admissions decisions.

The Office for Students is conducting a review of the admissions system and have committed to keeping Ministers and officials regularly informed of the emerging views and any recommendations from this work. The review is due to report later this year.

The Government has endorsed the proposal to use the review to consider the pros and cons of potential models of Post Qualification Application.
