Our funding methods
Most of our funding is distributed as block grants to institutions, allocated by formula. These take account of various factors, including recruitment in academic subject categories, mode and level, and the amount of high quality research undertaken in the institution.
We receive capital funding each year from the Welsh Government to support the learning and teaching and IT infrastructure, and the research infrastructure in the higher education sector.
HEFCW provides funding for a wide range of purposes. These are outlined in the annual Funding Allocations publication, the most recent being Funding Allocations 2016/17.
