The Office for Students (OfS) is implementing new freedom of speech functions.

In this consultation we are seeking views on proposals relating to:

  • guidance on the new free speech duties imposed on registered higher education providers, on their constituent institutions and on relevant students’ unions
  • our approach to our general functions relating to freedom of speech and academic freedom
  • our approach to the recovery of costs in connection with the new free speech complaints scheme.

This consultation sets out our proposals in this area. It also sets out the background to these proposals, why we are making them and what we expect their implementation to achieve.
