4 - The English funding system


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. Please feel free to share them widely.


Video 4: University funding and the English system

Some of the challenges that the English HE sector faces, including much political and public pressure, can be traced back to misunderstandings about how the sector is funded, how the student funding system works, and the impact this has on graduates' future finances. Sector organisations, and universities themselves, are now working harder to explain the funding system.
