The Higher Education and Research Bill provides for powers to vary or revoke Degree Awarding Powers. We plan to set out the proposed changes to the exact Degree Awarding Powers requirements and processes in new DfE criteria and guidance. The department intends to consult on the detail before publishing this guidance. Subject to the passage of the bill, we intend to consult before summer 2017.
