HEFCE closed at the end of March 2018. The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.
The HEFCE domain - www.hefce.ac.uk - will continue to function until September 2018. At this point we will close the site entirely and all its information will only be available from the National Web Archive.
UK universities lead the world in scientific research, and high-quality science is a pre-requisite for economic growth.
We encourage the higher education sector to respond to the Government’s consultation on the science budget, which has been launched today.
