The value of universities


The Higher Education sector has been working hard to communicate the invaluable ways it contributes to UK society.

BUFDG has contributed to this effort by supporting finance directors to improve financial communication, assisting the development of value reporting (in particular the use of Integrated Reporting <IR>), and developing our own educational materials.

These materials include a series of six short videos exploring the value of universities. The first four of these are below. The remaining videos will be added here in the coming weeks. Please feel free to share them.
