Patterns and Trends in UK Higher Education, 2011
Universities UK
This report builds on the time series data produced annually since 2001 under the title "Patterns of higher education institutions in the UK." It offers a unique overview of provision at publicly-funded higher education institutions in the UK. All charts and tables in the report are now also available to download from the Universities UK website. Section A shows sector-level trends over the last 10 years from 2000/01 to 2009/10. For the first time, this offers a true time series provided by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), accounting for changes to the way student numbers are counted. Section B looks at patterns of institutional diversity covering students, staff and finance. The report provides a very helpful insight into high-level trends during a decade of significant expansion and change. Among other things, the report tracks the rise of student numbers, the changing popularity of different subject areas, and a notable shift in the funding regime. It also demonstrates how higher education institutions continue to make a large contribution to civil society and the economy in the UK. Appended are: (1) Students by mode of study, level of study and country of institution 2009/10; (2) Students by subject of study and academic year; (3) Non UK-domiciled students by country of domicile and level of study 2009/10; (4) Income of higher education institutions by academic year, source of income and country of institution (British pounds thousands); (5) Administrative expenditure per full-time equivalent student (British pounds) by institution 2008/09; (6) Academic departmental costs per full-time equivalent student, excluding academic staff costs (British pounds) by institution 2008/09; (7) Total academic services expenditure per full-time equivalent student (British pounds) by institution 2008/09; (8) Premises expenditure per full-time equivalent student (British Pounds) by institution 2008/09; and (9) Summary of institutional charts for 2008/09 and 2009/10.
