Further and Higher Education Act 1992


Further and Higher Education Act 1992

The Further and Higher Education Acts 1992 made changes in the funding and administration of further education and higher education within the United Kingdom. The most visible result was to allow polytechnics to become universities. In addition the Act created bodies to fund higher education in England — HEFCE — and further education — FEFC. Universities in Scotland and Wales which had previously been funded by one UK-wide Universities Funding Council were the subject of other Acts that created higher education funding councils in each country.
