The Office for Fair Access ceased operation in April 2018. From 1 April 2018 responsibility for regulating fair access to higher education in England sits with the Office for Students
The Office for Fair Access (OFFA) was an independent, non departmental public body which aimed to promote and safeguard fair access to higher education for under-represented groups following the introduction of variable tuition fees in 2006-07.
Local Authorities are no longer responsible for processing loans, these are now dealt with by the Student Loans Company.
