Student fees supporting research

University of Leeds Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear University of Leeds,

For each of the last five years, please list the total income of the institution from student fees, and the percentage of that income used to directly support research activities.

Yours faithfully,

Stefan Zasada

Jenny Foggin,

Dear Stefan,

The annual report and accounts, which are published online, show the most recent figures we have for income from student tuition fees (please see http://www.leeds.ac.uk/downloads/downloa...) The next report will be published towards the end of the calendar year with fresh figures.

I am afraid that we are not able to provide a breakdown of the percentage of tuition fee income that is used to directly support research activities. Even if we were able to reach a satisfactory definition of 'direct support for research', income streams are just not accounted for in a way that would allow us to track the tuition fee income through in this way.

I am sorry that I can't provide more information on this occasion.

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision, you should write to or email directly Mr D Wardle, Deputy Secretary, The University of Leeds, Leeds, LS2 9JT ([email address]). You should do so within three months of receiving the University’s response to your request. Further information about how the University manages Freedom of Information requests and about our complaints procedure is also available on our website (www.leeds.ac.uk).

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the review/complaints procedure provided by the University. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

Best wishes,

Jenny
