Breakdown of income and expenditure 2018/19

An overview of our finances for the year 2018/19

Here are some financial headline figures that will give you a better insight into:

  • Where our university receives its income from
  • How we then invest it

We are committed to providing clear financial information and ensuring a strong focus on value for money.

University of Chichester income by activity 2018/19

 

Like most universities that receive public funding, the University of Chichester is a charity, and raises income from a wide range of sources.

This income is spent on providing high quality teaching and student services, undertaking research and enterprise activities engaging with businesses and local communities and day-to-day running costs. Any surplus income is reinvested back into improving facilities.

Fees from UK and EU students
Fees are currently capped at £9,250 a year, and students can take out a loan to cover this cost. Fee loans are only repaid when a graduate is earning above a certain amount, which is currently £25,725 per year.  The actual amount a student will actually pay for their course will therefore depend on how much they earn after graduating.

Government teaching grants
Some subjects cost more to deliver than the fees that UK and EU students pay. For these courses the government provides income to fill some, but not all, of this funding gap.

Fees from international students
Unlike home and EU students, universities receive no government support for international students. The fees for these students are unregulated and are often higher than those to UK and EU students.

Other sources of income
These include government grants for research, and new teaching and research facilities. Our research also generates some income from EU governments, charities, industry and public corporations. Finally, we receive income from investments, charitable donations and business activities.

University of Chichester expenditure by activity 2018/19

The University of Chichester's main expenditure is on providing outstanding teaching and research, we also spend money on a range of other areas that benefit students.

As well as maintaining existing facilities we have recently carried out a range of upgrades to the campus (for example the £35m Tech Park on our Bognor Regis campus).

Our spending can also benefit students’ future employment – our new careers centre will enable students to develop workplace skills, and take advantage of placements, internships and networking opportunities.

Further information on The University of Chichester's income and spending can be found in our financial statements.
