(a)must specify the purposes for which the provider is not to be treated as a registered higher education provider during the suspension (“the excepted purposes”), and

(5)The OfS may vary the excepted purposes or the remedial conditions at any time during the suspension.

(6)Where it decides to vary the excepted purposes or the remedial conditions, the OfS must notify the governing body of the provider of its decision.
