We wanted to update you about the situation and our response.

A specific allegation has been made regarding a meeting of Court in February 2017 at which the process for setting the remuneration of the Vice-Chancellor and other senior staff was raised.

We will be providing information to HEFCE this month about how remuneration is set and reported and about the meeting of Court in February.

We are committed to the highest standards of governance and treat very seriously any allegation made to our regulator. We will update our community once we have heard the outcome of HEFCE’s enquiries.
