HC Deb 03 December 1973 vol 865 cc291-2W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what are the annual receipts from fees for United Kingdom postgraduate students and overseas postgraduate students, respectively.

Mrs. Thatcher

Precise information is not available but for 1971–72 universities' income from fees for full-time postgraduate courses is estimated to have been about £3 million in respect of home students and a similar sum for overseas students. Fee income in respect of full-time postgraduate students in the non-university sector is estimated to have been about £¼ million.
