The Bill dissolves the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) and creates a new Welsh Government sponsored body to be known as the Commission for Tertiary Education and Research. This body will be responsible for the funding, oversight and regulation of tertiary education and research in Wales.

The Bill and Explanatory Memorandum are published on the Senedd website. Our Bill Summary, published on the Bill’s introduction, explains what the Bill does and how it came about.
