§ 46. Sir Harmar Nicholls
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the average cost per student per annum in a university, a polytechnic and a college of education.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The latest figures, which are provisional and relate to 1971–72, are £1,045, £751 and £484, respectively, using the same method of calculation as in the Department's Planning Paper No. 2.
The average costs quoted are running costs and do not include student maintenance awards and capital costs, debt charges and boarding costs in colleges of education.
