Table 6 - Tuition fees and education contracts analysed by HE provider, domicile, mode, level, source

Academic years 2016/17 to 2019/20


 This is a large table and will take a moment to load...

As part of their latest data submission, HE providers are able to restate the previous year's figures. In this table, previous year's figures are based on restated figures (so the 2017/18 figures are taken from the 2018/19 return).

A breakdown of tuition fees by source of fee for 2017/18 is not available for English providers as this has not been collected in 2018/19. Similarly, for English providers who have 2019/20 data, a breakdown by source of fee is not available for 2018/19.

Data source

HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) are the experts in UK higher education data and analysis. We have been collecting higher education information since the 1994/95 academic year.

Finance data is taken from the HESA Finances record, which universities, colleges and other higher education providers return to HESA on an annual basis. The Finance record collects a range of information about the primary financial statements from HE providers' published accounts.

From 2018/19, data for English HE providers (excluding further education colleges and sixth form colleges under the primary regulation of the Education and Skills Funding Agency) was collected by the Office for Students .

We provide data and analysis on finances of HE providers to a wide variety of customers, including:

  • Governments
  • Universities (via the Heidi Plus analytics tool)
  • Academic and commercial researchers
  • Students and potential students
  • Trade unions and employers' associations
  • Policy makers.

Our data is used to regulate the sector, inform policy making, advance understanding of social and economic trends, support decision making, and enhance public understanding of - and confidence in - the higher education sector.
