Dear University of Reading,

I am enquiring about student funding, and how it is allocated internally at the University of Reading. For the purposes of this FOI request, please assume that all students are paying a £9,000 a year fee, and are not in receipt of any bursaries or fee waivers.

Please set out how funding is allocated to the following categories in respect of a student studying BSc Computer Science:

* The School (in this case, The School of Mathematical, Physical and Computational Sciences) for teaching 120 credits. Please assume no modules are taken out of school.
* Central services (e.g. the exams office, the library, and other bodies). Please provide the top 8 categories with associated percentages and an "other" category for the remaining central expenditure.
* Any significant expenditure not in the above two categories.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Howe

IMPS, University of Reading

Council-fundable student for each subject. For “Electrical, electronic and
computer engineering”, the cost per student was £10,285 in FY15/16.
Attached below is a short explanation how it is calculated.
