Terms of Reference
The purpose of this inquiry is to consider the funding of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Wales, the financial impact of the Welsh Government’s tuition fee grant policy on HEIs and students in Wales, and whether the Welsh Government is delivering value for money in this area.
The new part time Higher Education funding policy does not come into effect until 2014 and therefore this enquiry focuses on full time Higher Education funding.
Our terms of reference cover three broad income streams of HEI funding plus the role of finance in choices made by students:
There are two sets of consultation questions – one aimed at organisations and one aimed at students and/ or their parents/guardians.
There will also be a detailed student survey which can be completed by Welsh domiciled students in years 12 and 13 and Welsh domiciled students currently studying at HEIs.
Please complete the set of questions that are most relevant to you.
