Average full economic cost (to the university) of an undergraduate degree in engineering
Dear University of West London,
Please provide the average full economic cost (to the university) of an undergraduate degree in engineering at the University. Please include all costs directly and indirectly associated with the activity e.g. including staff pension costs and IT costs. Please include all costs that can be reasonably attributed to the degree using the data that you have
Please break down your answer in two ways (a) by the seven UCAS classifications of engineering degrees (b) by cost type (e.g. payroll, IT, equipment etc) please break this information down into its natural and principal cost categories giving as much detail as is feasible.
FYI – UCAS classify engineering degrees into seven categories as follows
1. General engineering
2. Civil engineering
3. Mechanical engineering
4. Aerospace engineering
5. Electronic and electrical engineering
6. Production and manufacturing engineering
7. Chemical, process and energy engineering
This is not a strange or unusual request but is merely requesting what is a key management metric i.e. the cost per degree. Since Universities are required to be run in a financially astute manner, this information should be routinely provided to university course leaders, and the executive board for decision making purposes, and these figures should be a key factor in the setting of undergraduate fees and in the decision to continue (or discontinue) courses.
If you do not have the complete information, please provide as much as possible.
Dr Jim Partridge
