HC Deb 20 June 1995 vol 262 c161W
Mr. Pickthall

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what is the total costs per Oxford and Cambridge colleges of the tuition fees top-up. [29360]

Mr. Boswell

The Department estimates that total public funding payable through the mandatory awards system in the current academic year for undergraduate college fees at Oxford and Cambridge colleges to be approximately £56,000,000. The Higher Education Funding Council for England takes account of the Oxbridge colleges' fee income in determining the level of grant payable to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge and abates those universities' grants accordingly.
