Benefits and cutbacks in university funding review.

‘Some small and specialist institutions in England have seen a huge boost to their teaching funding after a review into grant allocations at such establishments.

The increase in teaching income was revealed in the Higher Education Funding Council for England’s funding allocations for 2016-17 published on 6 May.

The increases come despite an overall slight reduction in the total amount of funding allocated to universities for 2016-17.

More than £2,986 million will be distributed between higher education institutions in 2016-17, down from the £3,011 million allocated in 2015-16.

The recurrent research grant has increased by £20 million, or 1.9 per cent, since 2015-16, while the recurrent teaching grant for the upcoming academic year is down about £50 million on 2015-16 figures thanks to the continued phasing in of the £9,000 tuition-fee regime.’ – Times Higher Education
