Background to funding learning and teaching

We developed the way in which we fund learning at teaching through two stages of consultation. This responded to the Government’s policy to fund learning and teaching through increased tuition fees while reducing the annual funding that we allocate.

For full details of the Government’s policy see the 2011 White Paper, ‘Higher Education: students at the heart of the system’. 

Our first consultation focused on interim arrangements for 2012-13 and the second on arrangements for 2013-14 and beyond.

2013-14 and beyond

Our second consultation set out how we:

  • support policies for change and dynamism while seeking to manage undue volatility
  • ensure the overall public financing of higher education remains affordable to Government
  • provide continuing support for areas which are a priority to Government and in the public interest, and which carry additional costs that cannot be met through tuition fees.

Sector impact assessment of the stage-two consultation

In developing the proposals for allocating student numbers and teaching funding for 2013-14 we have assessed the impact on the HE sector in terms of regulatory burden, equality and diversity, sustainable development and privacy.

2012-13

Between June and September 2011 we consulted on interim arrangements for funding teaching and managing student numbers in the academic year 2012-13.
