HEFCE logoThe Higher Education Academy (HEA) was established in 2003 to help institutions, discipline groups and all staff provide the best possible learning experience for their students. It is currently primarily funded by the four UK funding bodies, with growing income from other sources including subscriptions from higher education institutions.
In May 2013 the funding bodies commissioned independent consultants to evaluate whether the HEA is effectively achieving the general priorities set by the funding bodies and its wider aims and objectives.  The review was also asked to consider whether the HEA is providing the funders and the sector with value for money.
