Executive summary

Purpose

1.   This consultation seeks comments on proposals to withdraw from 2010-11, possibly phased over a number of years, the following three targeted allocations from recurrent teaching funding:

  • old and historic buildings
  • accelerated and intensive provision of postgraduate taught subjects in price band D
  • foundation degrees.

Key points

2.   We propose to withdraw or phase out from 2010-11 three targeted allocations as part of a package of measures to achieve efficiency savings required of higher education by the Government. We seek comments on whether there are compelling counter-arguments to our proposals; and if not on how we should implement the proposals to enable institutions to manage the impact. A summary of consultation questions is at Annex A.

Action required

3.   Responses to this consultation should be made by 1 pm Thursday 15 October 2009, using the online form.
