  • Academic department depreciation - Table 8 (2015/16)

    In 2015/16, The School of Oriental and African Studies incorrectly reported the allocation of academic department depreciation to individual academic departments within the Finance record Table 8. Academic department depreciation is less than 1% of total academic department expenditure.

    With the exception of 145 Media Studies, the effect on each academic department is not material. 

    The revised figures for 145 Media Studies are: Depreciation: £3k, Total: £381k.

  • Balance, Table 3 (2011/12)

    Please note for the University of Sheffield the debtors figure within current assets includes a long term debtor (i.e. due after more than one year) of £15,735k for 2010/11 and £16,198k for 2010/11. This long term debtor is the capital contribution to the Student Residences Project and is released as the student accommodation becomes available. The HESA return does not have a line to show long term debtors and as in previous years I have included it in the debtor line within current assets.

  • Bursaries and scholarships expenditure (2012/13)

    The University of Leicester incorrectly assigned expenditure to 3biii 'General education expenditure - other general expenditure’ in the 2012/13 Finance Statistics return table 7. The expenditure should have been listed under sub heads 3bi ‘national bursaries’ and 3bii ‘institution specific bursaries and scholarships’.

    The amended figures are as follows (£000s):

    3bi National Bursaries:
    Other operating expenses = 248
    Total Expenditure = 248

    3bii Institutional specific bursaries and scholarships:
    Other operating expenses = 2,525
    Total Expenditure = 2,525

    3biii Other general expenditure:
    Academic staff costs = 115
    Other staff costs = 1,389
    Total staff costs = 1,504
    Other operating expenses = 3,807
    Total Expenditure = 5,311

  • Capital expenditure - Table 9, 2015/16

    In 2015/16, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama incorrectly reported some figures within the Finance record Table 9, sections 1a and 3a. The correct figures are as follows:

    • 1 Residences operations
      • 1a Buildings
        • 1 Total actual spend £0k
        • 4 Internal funds £0k

  • Capital Expenditure, Buildings (2018/19)

    For 2018/19, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance entered values in Table 9 : ‘Analysis of Capital expenditure’ for ‘Residences operations: Buildings’, these values should have been under ‘Other operations: Buildings’ on the same table.

  • Capital expenditure, Table 8 (2011/12)

    The Conservatoire of Dance and Drama in error omitted some of their capital expenditure for 2011/12 from part of the report. They should have included £8,000 under 2b Other operations: Equipment. This figure is reported in their consolidated cash flow statement.

    Bath Spa University misreported in Finance Statistics return Table 8, £500K capital expenditure in Other operations: Buildings, internal funds. The figure should read £2924K instead of £3424K. The Residences and catering operations: Buildings, internal funds capital expenditure should read £500K instead of £0.

  • Creditors - Table 3, sections 7a and 3b (2015/16)

      • 7b Obligations under finance leases and service concessions

  • Expenditure (2013/14)

    In 2013/14, The University of Huddersfield had significant Expenditure (FSR Table 7) versus student FTE for their physics cost centre. This was due to new physics courses being developed to be offered to students in the future.

    In 2013/14, the Royal Veterinary College incorrectly reported within the FSR Table 7, 2 Total academic services: other staff costs and other operating expenses and the same 2 figures for 3a Central administration and services. The correct figures are as follows:

    2 Total academic services:

        other staff costs £1,701K

        other operating expenses £1,331K

    3a Central administration & services:

        other staff costs £5,837K

         other operating expenses £3,409K

    In 2013/14, The University of Lincoln had significant Expenditure versus student FTE in the Pharmacy & Pharmacology and Chemistry academic departments (FSR Table 7). This is due to two new schools being established within these academic departments. The new School of Pharmacy accepted students for the first time in 2013/14 and the School of Chemistry is due to take its first cohort of students in 2014/15. Once both schools are established it would be expected that their unit expenditure (Expenditure divided by student FTE) would be comparable to other similar academic departments within the university.

    In 2013/14, The University of Chester had an extremely high unit expenditure for its physics cost centre. This is due to a genuine small fraction of a student being returned to this cost centre within their student return. This has the effect of significantly inflating the expenditure figure when calculated as a unit expenditure, i.e. expenditure divided by student FTE.

  • Expenditure - breakdown by activity, Table 8 (2018/19)

    Hartpury University is a group with a number of subsidiary companies, one of which is a designated Further Education Institution. The data within Table 8: ‘Expenditure - breakdown by activity and HESA cost centre’ include substantial costs associated with the FE provision delivered, including at the cost centre level.

  • Expenditure by activity, Table 7 (2011/12)

    For the University of Sheffield, their other operating expenses for central administration and services increased by £2,021K (2011/12 £10,508k v. 2010/11 £8,487k). This difference includes exchange rate differences, which were a gain of £437k in 2010/11 and a £2,719k loss in 2011/12.

    For the University of Lancaster, the clinical medicine cost centre has a very high unit expenditure of £912,139. Calculated from £1,959K expenditure and 2.1 student FTE. This is genuine because Medicine at Lancaster is funded by HEFCE via Liverpool University who return the student FTE's.

  • Finance Record (2014/15 to 2016/17)

    The Finance record is constructed each year to the Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP). A fundamental review of the Finance record was completed in 2014, with the resulting changes implemented in a new specification for the 2015/16 collection, taking into consideration the changes from the implementation of Financial Reporting Standards (FRS) 102. Financial Reporting Standards (FRS) 102 is the new financial reporting framework for higher and further education providers for reporting periods starting on or after 1 January 2015. These new standards have introduced significant changes in the way financial performance is reported, which present difficulties in comparing results from 2015/16 and 2016/17 with historical trends, and in comparing results between providers. Some transitional changes reflected in the restated 2014/15 results mean this is also an atypical year.
