HC Deb 13 April 1976 vol 909 cc459-60W
Mr. Scott

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the average cost of the provision per student of an engineering first degree in a university and in a further education institution, respectively.

Mr. Gerry Fowler

Comparative costings specific to first degree courses in engineering at universities and further education establishments are not available. These courses form part of a larger group of advanced level courses involving laboratory or workshop facilities—but excluding medicine—for which the average net recurrent institutional cost per student in the financial year 1974–75 is estimated at £2,000 for universities and £1,940 for polytechnics at 1975 Survey prices. Some engineering first degree work also takes place in other major establishments of further education, but separate costings for these are not available.
