A guide to presenting institutional financial information to students



In recent years there has been increasing interest in the income universities receive and how they spend it.

While there are good examples of institutions presenting their financial information clearly and accessibly, there is room for further improvement across the sector. UUK has put together this guide to help and support universities in explaining to students:

  • where their money comes from
  • how they spend it
  • how this adds value to the student experience

Feedback from students, sector stakeholders and UUK’s value for money advisory group has all helped to shape the guide, and it is hoped that it will serve as a call to action for the sector to be proactive in this area.
