HEFCW have changed the process for controlling their fee grant obligation, instead of allocation a maximum number of students that universities can enrol they have given each university a maximum fee grant allocation. This refers to the grant the Welsh Government provides to all Welsh and EU full-time undergraduate students that are being charged a fee over £3,575 to maintain welsh students’ fee liabilities at this level. This allows unlimited recruitment of English Students with the cap only being on Welsh and EU Students. This includes:
The maximum fee grant for the University of South Wales in 2013/14 is £26,945,313. HEFCW will allow a tolerance of 5% to take into account improved retention this gives a maximum cap of £28,292,579.
