Introducing the Key Information Sets: Janet Beer writes for the Guardian

Monday, 12 September 2011


Key Information Sets about courses will have to be published on all Higher Education Institutions websites.

From September 2012, universities will have to provide Key Information Sets to prospective students giving course information about areas including graduate employment and salary data; details of professional accreditation; Students’ Union information; accommodation costs and details of fees.

Most of this information is already available. However, a KIS will draw it all together into a consistent and simple format.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Janet Beer has written about the introduction of the KIS for the Guardian Higher Education Network.
