Chapter 4: General
Section 83: Designation of other providers of tertiary education

260.This section enables the Welsh Ministers to designate a provider of tertiary education who would not otherwise be regarded as an institution for the purposes of this Part to be treated as such. “Tertiary education providers in Wales” must be “institutions” (see the definitions in section 144(1)). The designation will be made on the application of the provider concerned.

261.A provider designated as an “institution” under this section may be treated as an ”institution” for the purposes of registration, quality assurance and quality assessment functions under this Part, but will still need to meet all other criteria in section 25(5) to be able to register with the Commission; and its activities must be wholly or mainly carried on in Wales in order to fall within the definition of a “tertiary education provider in Wales”.

262.Subsection (4) allows the Welsh Ministers to make regulations providing for the manner in which applications for designation under this section are made and the making of designation decisions, including criteria for confirming and withdrawing designation and the effect of withdrawal of designation.
