Wells Advisory HE is distinctive in offering higher education consultancy services provided by senior advisers drawn from UK HE, together with providing an Australian perspective where its highly successful parent company is based. This international dimension provides close ties with the Far East (China in particular) as well as Australasian partnership opportunities and HE experience.
Our specialist areas of support and advice for UK HE providers focus on strategic change and innovation to achieve income generation and financial sustainability. This spans portfolio review, most recently to identify opportunities for digital short courses, CPD and micro-credentials (pioneered in Australia), to organisational development and cost saving initiatives.
WA has a particular strength in providing advice and guidance on regulation, OfS Registration, quality assurance and governance across tertiary education. We offer expertise to new entrants and established HE providers (including independents).
WA has a track record of achieving international inward investment to support HE providers seeking international partnerships, funding packages, sale or purchase. Guidance can be provided on utilising such assets as degree awarding powers (DAP) and UKVI Licensed Sponsor status under the student route, together with the provision of advice and assistance with international student recruitment.
The UK Directors are Professor Roger King and Dr Elizabeth Halford. Professor Sir Deian Hopkin, Alison Allden OBE and Tayyeb Shah are Principal Advisers.
