ACM is a registered Office for Students provider*

ACM is proud to announce that it is now Office for Students (OfS) Registered. This means we meet OfS requirements for course quality, academic standards, student support, student protection and more. This government recognition of the quality and value of ACM’s higher education programmes is firm evidence of our continued and strengthening commitment to excellence in teaching and student experience.

The OfS is the regulator of higher education in England. Its focus is on the interests of students, particularly on enhancing student experience and outcomes, and delivering value for money for both students and for taxpayers.

Being registered means a higher education provider has demonstrated to the OfS that it:

  • provides well-designed courses that deliver a high-quality academic experience for all students
  • supports students from admission through to completion
  • ensures students’ outcomes are valued by employers, or enable further study
  • awards qualifications, through its validation arrangements, that hold their value over time, in line with recognised standards
  • pays regard to guidance about how to comply with consumer protection law
  • has a published student protection plan setting out the risks of course, campus or provider closure and how it will protect students’ interests in this event
  • has the financial resources to provide and deliver the courses advertised
  • has the management and governance arrangements necessary to provide and deliver the courses advertised.

Access and participation plan

As part of its registration with the OfS ACM has developed an access and participation plan that sets us clear benchmarks for our progress in supporting key groups. This plan sets out how we will improve equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups to access, succeed in and progress from higher education. Access and Participation Plans are renewed and formally approved by the Office for Students.
