Tertiary Education and Research (Wales) Act 2022

Section 90: Financial support under sections 88 and 89: terms and conditions

288.This section provides that the Commission may impose such terms and conditions as it considers appropriate to funding it allocates for the purpose of supporting higher education. In particular, such terms and conditions may require the repayment of funds (including with interest) if the purposes for which the funding is allocated are not complied with. However the Commission may not impose conditions that relate to funding derived from other sources, for example income generated from providers’ own activities including tuition fees, funds from industry or donations from benefactors.

289.Where the Commission allocates funding to providers for higher education courses specified in regulations under section 89(1), who are not included in the register (i.e. unregistered providers) then the Commission must impose terms and conditions that require such providers to:

  • have a learner protection plan approved by the Commission in place (subject to the Commission having given notice of this requirement) and to give effect to the plan;

  • comply with the requirements of the extant Learner Engagement Code published by the Commission under section 129 if they are a tertiary education provider in Wales; and

  • have regard to advice or guidance given by the Commission to the provider.
