§ Mr. Peter Robinson
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what information he has as to the average cost per year of educating an undergraduate student at each of the universities in Northern Ireland.
§ Mr. Scott
It is not possible to identify separately the cost of educating an undergraduate student; the available information for all students is as follows:
Average cost 1981–82 academic year £ The Queen's University of Belfast 5,230 The New University of Ulster 4,456
These figures reflect the different subjects taught at each institution; they exclude student maintenance grants and capital expenditure.
