Summary and key documents

In April 2016 we announced grant allocations for 2016-17 for each university and college that we fund.


Figures in the chart are correct as of April 2016.

The total HEFCE grant available for the 2016-17 academic year is £3,674 million.

Teaching allocations were based on 2015-16 student FTEs submitted in the 2015 HESES or HEIFES surveys.
