asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much money was spent by them on UK e-Universities Worldwide (UKeU) between its establishment in 2001 and its winding down in June 2004. [HL1476]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Education and Skills (Lord Filkin)

The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) reports that £42.5 million was spent on UKeU during the period specified. Of that total, HEFCE anticipates that there will be a residual value of about £12.8 million, primarily from developing learning programmes.
