UUK response to HEFCE consultationIn June 2016 the Higher Education Funding Council for England published a consultation setting out proposals relating to teaching funding for 2017–18 and beyond, including changes to funding for widening participation and taught postgraduate education. 

Universities UK is grateful for the opportunity to respond to the consultation, although the response should be read with the caveat that we may revisit our comments once further details on other changes to teaching funding, the operation of the Office for Students, and the TEF are clearer​.
