Changes to the UCAS Tariff in 2017
The 2017 admissions cycle will see a significant change to the UCAS Tariff. At a basic level, this will involve a new set of Tariff values for all Tariffed qualifications. At a more fundamental level, it introduces a wholly new methodology for allocating Tariff points to individual qualifications. SPA encourages all HE providers – whether a 'Tariff-using' institution or not – to take time to understand how the UCAS Tariff has changed and what the potential impacts are for your recruitment, selection and admissions activities.
UCAS has produced a wide range of resources to support HE providers, applicants and their advisers, which are available through the UCAS website.
- Tariff resources for HEPs (log-in required)
- Tariff resources for teachers and advisers
- Tariff resources for applicants
- UCAS' wider qualification reform guidance
SPA has produced a list of considerations to support HE providers in assessing and addressing the impacts of these changes on their recruitment, selection and admissions policies and procedures.
