Subscription Agreement information

We have issued our revised Subscription Agreement following consultation with HE providers and engagement with our Statutory Customers.

Due to the different statutory and regulatory environments in each country there are different versions of this agreement for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. An example of each agreement can be viewed by following these links:

Selecting Optional Services as part of your Subscription

The Subscription that has been issued is drafted in such a way that it lasts longer than one year - it will continue to be applicable until further notice, unless a variation request is submitted.

The optional services selected through the subscription agreement are for the collection of data relating to academic year 2019/20 onwards, unless we subsequently receive a variation form from you.
