Staff invited to teaching and research funding workshops

Students in Lecture Theatre

Following last month’s announcement of the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) Grant for 2012/13, staff are invited to attend workshops which explain the implications for the University.

The workshops, led by the department of Strategic Planning, will give staff the opportunity to find out more about how teaching and research funding is allocated and differences in student number controls for 2012-13.

Participants will also hear about the effect of AAB/non-AAB splits, the impact on strategically important & vulnerable subjects such as sciences and languages, and how clinical areas are affected. In addition, the session will talk about why student validation is important to the allocation of funding as internal income to Level 1 units.

The workshops, which are open to all staff, take place on Tuesday, 1 and Thursday, 3 May, 1.30-3.30pm in the Foresight Centre. Refreshments will be available from 1pm.

To book a place contact David Blackmore in Strategic Planning on 795 0339 or email

Full details of the HEFCE Grant and an analysis of the implications can be found on the Strategic Planning website.
