Grant Thornton

Grant Thornton's Not for Profit team has been at the heart of the education sector in the UK for many years and our clients come from every corner of the country.


Our clients range across the entire UK sector, but we have built specific expertise in specialist, post '92 and arts institutions to bring the expertise of a large professional services advisor to every institution. Our experts regularly attend British University Finance Directors’ Group conferences, provide training at their events and engage closely with the Financial Reporting Group and HE SORP committee. As a trusted advisor in the sector, we have forged new links with the Office for Students (OfS) and continuously feed into the development of their regulatory framework. These connections mean we are at the forefront of addressing issues and keeping our sector specialists informed.

We understand the opportunities for the UK’s higher education sector as well as the risks, including Brexit, media interest in senior remuneration, pension contributions, capital investments and the implications of changes to student tuition fees.
