Extra funds to put UK universities in global competition

UK universities will need at least an extra £1.6bn in funding each year from 2004 to 2010, according to a report by London Economics.

The extra investment is needed to enhance quality in higher education provision, to widen access to disadvantaged groups in society and to enable universities to compete globally.

The report describes a number of options for funding higher education that are based on combinations of public and private contributions.
