Welcome to a Real Art School

Here you can find the latest version of the Art School’s Student Protection Plan, as required by the Office for Students.

Student protection plans set out what students can expect to happen should a course, campus, or institution close. The purpose of a plan is to ensure that students can continue and complete their studies, or can be compensated if this is not possible.

All higher education providers registered with the Office for Students (OfS) must have a student protection plan in place.

Once registered, the OfS expects providers to collaborate with students to review and refresh the plan on a regular basis.

Student Protection Plans:

  • – must be approved by the OfS
  • – must be easily available to current and prospective students
  • – should address the specific risks to the continuation of study for that provider’s students in a proportionate way
  • – will always include minimum measures for ensuring that existing students can complete their course and continue to access student finance, or transfer to other providers. 

In the event of a change in a provider’s circumstances (such as significant course closure or a campus closure) the Office for Students will work closely with the provider and its students to ensure that students’ interests continue to be protected through any changes.
