HC Deb 28 November 1983 vol 49 c387W
Mr. Peter Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the average cost per year of educating students at the Ulster polytechnic.

Mr. Scott

Differences in level, length and mode of study make it impossible to produce a meaningul averge figure. In the financial year 1982–83 recurrent expenditure was £17.1 million; in the academic years 1981–82 and 1982–83 there were 6,007 and 6,236 full time equivalent students.
