19. For 2017-18 allocations, some necessary amendments were made to the established HEIF methods to accommodate the additional £40 million provided then by Government to deliver Industrial Strategy priorities. The approach was set out in HEFCE 2017/25 ‘Higher Education Innovation Fund: Additional funding for knowledge exchange to deliver the Industrial Strategy’. Research England and the Office for Students have agreed a similar approach in allocating the recurrent formula funding for 2018-19. With the additional £25 million:

It is then up to each local authority to distribute this total between local schools using their own local formula, as at present. Hence school-level figures are notional or illustrative as are constituency summaries which are built up from school level data. The DfE has also published unit funding figures per pupil for at primary and secondary levels, but only for local authorities and only in 2018-19. The range of underlying data on the NFF also includes the impacts for each local authority of the high needs NFF and the central school services block. None of the data includes funding for early years, 16 to 19 year olds or the pupil premium, all of which are outside the

Doctoral Education And Government Funding In Higher Education Institutions: An Approach From Chile

Doctoral Education And Government Funding In Higher Education Institutions: An Approach From Chile

The evaluation of doctoral experience quality as preparation of teachers is complex. The above is because a significant proportion of trained doctors works outside the academia instead of becoming teachers. In turn, many doctoral students develop their work as assistant teachers, delivering part of undergraduate teaching in a typical large university (Austin, 2002). It is worth mentioning that a quarter of doctoral graduates finds work in higher education institutions or outside the University in research centers (Enders, 2005). This is relevant because just as in Australia and the rest of the developed world, Chile is in the midst of addressing associated with the age structure of its academic staff issues; also with an increasing need to improve the workforce at country level, university and faculty (Edwards and Smith, 2010). The quality of faculty, therefore, is crucial for any higher education institution achieve its mission and success (Al-Ghamdi and Malcolm, 2013). Moreover, increased funding for doctoral programs in Australia, has brought an increase in demand for academics with doctorates in Australian universities, as well as the increased enrollment of international doctoral candidates (Heaney et al., 2012).

Funding Crisis in Higher Education Institutions: Rationale for Change

Funding Crisis in Higher Education Institutions: Rationale for Change

Of particular interest is the Higher Education Council for England (HEFCE) which was established as a non-departmental public body for funding HEIs and promoting their financial health while maintaining good practice (Katayama and Gough, 2008, Lewis, 2002). In practice, most funds received by the HEIs in UK come from both the public and private sectors. HEFCE determines the distribution of funding allocation on the basis of the performance indicators to ensure that the investment of public money is transparent and HEIs deliver services in alignment with the government agenda (Draper and Gittoes, 2004). HEFC Edistributes funds as block grants to institutions to promote high-quality, cost-effective teaching and research in universities and colleges focussing on special funds for different activities and earmarked capital funding. Funding is allocated on the basis of certain formulae as well as the amount paid to each institution in the previous year. The amount is also adjusted by inflation and the number of student enrolments (Bakker, 2007).

State Funding Decision-Making for Higher Education Institutions During Capital Campaigns

State Funding Decision-Making for Higher Education Institutions During Capital Campaigns

Lowry (2001) examined institutional settings where financial decisions are made and the selection methods of public trustee governing boards. He argued that institutional governance structure was relevant because of the likelihood of various actors to influence university prices and spending behavior. Lowry analyzed tuition and fee revenue and spending on units such as academics affairs, student affairs, and facilities management at 407 campuses in 47 states. Lowry found that public universities in states with governmental structure that are prone to political control and universities where trustees are appointed by nonacademic individuals tend to charge much lower prices than institutions in states that have a regulated decentralized system and trustees that are appointed by academic officers. He also noted that there was a difference in revenue, which were in areas that benefited predominately faculty and staff but students to a lesser extent. Lowry’s result showed that prices and spending behavior of public universities differed based on governmental structure and the way trustees were selected.

Shifting trends in higher education funding

Shifting trends in higher education funding

like the United Kingdom that are of the opinion that the individual should make a greater contribution towards the costs of higher education, it becomes clear that higher education cannot be seen as a pure public good. The higher return to money invested in primary education relative to higher education makes it more profitable for countries to invest more in primary education. In the 1990s this was also accompanied by lower donor funding for higher education. This led to more countries introducing or increasing tuition fees (Woodhall, 2008: 20). It seems as though individuals will in future contribute to a greater extent towards their own higher educational costs. It is important to remember that the finances for higher education originate from only four sources. With direct subsidies to higher education institutions it is the taxpayers that finance higher education. With cost-sharing the other parties involved must contribute as well. This includes students that have to pay higher tuition fees or the parents of students that financially support their children. In the last instance higher education institutions also receive philanthropic funding (the so called third income stream). If government contributions to higher education decrease it means that the shortfall must be financed by one of the last mentioned three sources.

Methods. The study is primarily based on qualitative research methods. Views of different groups of stakeholders are analyzed on the basis of survey data, interviews and focus group discussion results. The list of interviewees is presented in Appendix 1. A survey was per- formed among the members of the Latvian Rectors’ Council and board of the Latvian Profes- sors’ Association. 41 questionnaires were obtained including 34 from representatives of state higher education institutions and 7 from private higher education institutions. 29 of the re- spondents were rectors and vice rectors, nine were department heads and three professors. A stakeholders in the study were grouped as follows: - Ministry of Finance and commercial banks, Ministry of Education and Science, Ministry of Economics, Ministry of Regional De- velopment and Local Government; - Higher Education Council, Rectors’ Council; representa- tives of employers; students. The views of these groups of stakeholders are reflected in this study. Only in particular cases an individual opinion is cited. Analysis of legislative and policy documents is performed as part of the study. Quantitative indicators are used to characterize specific features of the funding system of higher education, as well as the interaction of this system with the overall development of higher education.

Public Funding of Higher Education

Public Funding of Higher Education

Higher education is currently being criticized by scholars, politicians, and the popular press who demand that higher education institutions undertake reforms. The claim is that colleges and universities bear the financial costs of very costly bureaucracies and other non-academic activities while in many cases fail to achieve their core mission of increasing the skills and human potential of the individual student (see Hacker and Dreifus, 2010). These demands for value from higher education institutions have been triggered by ever rising tuition fees and shaky economic conditions. This is happening worldwide but is more pronounced in Western countries where governments plan to cut their contributions to higher education (see, e.g., UK, USA, the Netherlands and Israel). Since public resources are generally scarce, choices have to be made and the following questions are often raised: (i) What is the justification for public participation in funding higher education? (ii) For developing countries, should funding of higher education be a priority or, perhaps, should resources be used to upgrade the quality of compulsory schooling? The objective of this paper is to address these tradeoffs formally in an open-economy equilibrium framework.

The Secretary of State writes to the funding councils around the turn of each year to set out funding, priorities, student numbers and related matters for the following financial year. Occasionally these letters cover more than one year and sometimes revised versions are published. The most recent funding letters for the Office for Students and Research England were published in February and March 2018 respectively. Funding for teaching 2018-19, research was for 2018-19 and indicative totals for 2019-20.

Government wants to make sure that higher education is available to all who wish to pursue it and this includes mature students. That is why, in our last guidance to the Director of Fair Access, we asked that institutions take into account the needs of older learners and make more effort to attract mature students as part of their Access Agreements. Higher Education Providers expect to spend around £860 million for 2018/19 on activity to widen participation.

Reform of higher education funding in England

Reform of higher education funding in England

Mr. Boswell: To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what information he holds on the (a) value and (b) change in value of university endowments in each of the last five years, broken down by (a) donations, (b) surplus transfers, (c) match funding, (d) realised asset sales and (e) unrealised capital gains. [232614] Mr. Lammy: It is not possible to answer this question precisely from the data which are currently collected centrally. The following table sets out the information we hold on the overall income English higher education institutions have generated in each of the last five years from endowments. In August, we launched a £200 million matched funding scheme over three years to promote more philanthropic donations to higher education. We shall be working closely with institutions and discussing what data should be captured in future to enable us to quantify progress being made in diversifying the range of funding streams available to higher education providers.

Higher education funding for 2011-12 and beyond

Higher education funding for 2011-12 and beyond

14) We want to ensure that students who have the ability and motivation to gain a higher education qualification can do so. We believe that the changes we are making from autumn 2012 will facilitate this, by reducing the overall costs of higher education that fall directly on the public purse. However, for 2011-12 the system is unchanged and we face extremely challenging public spending constraints. So we have to control public expenditure costs by controlling student numbers. Even so, our budget assumptions, including funding for student support, are that entrant places into higher education for autumn 2011 remain at the level on offer in autumn 2010. This means continuing to make provision for the 10,000 additional entrant places made available to the sector through the University Modernisation Fund in May 2010, so that those additional places can be carried forward for a further year. It is for you to decide whether a reallocation of places between institutions is appropriate, given that very specific conditions were tied to the UMF places, and these conditions applied to them alone. As a provisional planning assumption, universities and colleges should work on the basis that this pulse of

Performance contracts are viewed as a technique to ensure that the service provider is responsible for results service. In the agreement of performance contracts regardless with a private or nonprofits institutions clearly defined and specify what type and level of performance supposed to be achieved. In the PBF mechanism, the funding was not based on history trends activities but rather on guarantee of prospect and future performance and there were no penalties if performance objectives were not accomplished however all depends on the agreements concluded collectively (Edlin & Schwartz, 2003). Incentives should be provided to enable the institution to achieve optimum performance while the penalty charged for the institutions that fail to meet the objectives, all of this should be clearly stated in the contract for performance (Salmi & Hauptman, 2006a).

Funding higher education: policies for access and quality

Funding higher education: policies for access and quality

'A flat fee will continue the erosion of quality at the best universities, which face the biggest shortfalls. If this policy continues, the result will be to deprive British students of the chance of an internationally cutting-edge undergraduate degree in one of two ways. The quality of the best institutions might fall; British students could still get places, but the quality of the degree would be less. Alternatively, the best institutions will largely stop teaching British undergraduates (for whom they receive on average £4000 per year) and will use the fees from foreign undergraduates (around £8000 per year) to preserve their excellence. The government is considering trying to prevent British universities from charging additional fees to UK/EU students. Again, this is done for equity reasons; again, it ends up harming the very people it is aimed at helping, in this case by creating a situation where British students will find it harder and harder to get places at the best universities' (Barr and Crawford, 1997, para. 57).

Sustainable Funding Models For Higher Education In Kenya

Sustainable Funding Models For Higher Education In Kenya

In Rwanda according to (Nuwagaba,2013) in his study on Evaluation of the current higher education funding model in Rwanda using Higher Education Students’ Loans Department, found that Rwanda uses cost-sharing model among other models such as use of tuition fees, internally generated funds by higher learning institutions and bank loans. In his findings, he concluded that the cost sharing model was the best model for Rwanda but it faced challenges of corruption .He noted that those who deserved to be given the funds were not given but rather those who did not deserve were awarded. Nuwagaba adds that, good financing of higher education helps in production of graduates who are not only good in academics but also who are competent in the corporate world and this is the goal that Kenya want to achieve in its vision 2030.
