--- Advertisement ---



As of August 2017, there were 109 universities and university colleges in England[1] out of a total of around 130 in the United Kingdom. This includes private universities but does not include other Higher Education Institutions[Note 1] that have not been given the right to call themselves "university" or "university college" by the Privy Council or Companies House (e.g. colleges of higher education), or colleges of the University of London. The following is a list of English universities and university colleges recognised by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), together with the date on which they were created. HEFCE publishes the official list.[3] See also: List of universities in the United Kingdom

Universities[edit] 'Established' refers to the date when an institution was established as a university. Where two dates are listed below the first gives the year the institution became a University while the second (in parentheses) gives the year the institution was established in another form (for example if it was previously a College or a Central Institution). See also List of UK universities by date of foundation. If only a dash and a year in parentheses is given, the institution is either a university college or a college of the University of London and the date in parentheses refers to the year of its establishment. 'Number of students' is the total number of higher education students from the Higher Education Statistics Agency tables for 2016/17 for publicly-funded universities and the University of Buckingham.[4] HESA statistics do not cover other private universities or private university colleges; student numbers for such institutions (where given) are referenced in the table. 'Tuition fee' refers to the annual tuition fee for Home/EU students studying full-time undergraduate degree courses, from the Reddin Survey of University Tuition Fees 2017-18 (except where otherwise referenced).[5] 'p/g only' means the university is listed by HEFCE as providing postgraduate courses only, so has no undergraduate tuition fees.[3] 'Degree powers' refers to whether the university has the power to award all degrees, degrees of the University of London, or taught degrees.[Note 2] Institutions with only foundation degree awarding powers are not eligible for university or university college title.

Notes[edit]

^ Higher Education Institution is a term defined by the Further and Higher Education Act 1992, meaning any UK University, higher education corporation or institution designated by Parliamentary Order as eligible to receive funding grants.[2] Note this does not include colleges of the University of London. ^ This information is taken from individual institution profiles on the HEFCE register.[3] ^ Listed as "Taught" on the HEFCE database. This would appear to be an error - the latest QAA report says Aston awards research degrees.[7] ^ Despite its name, UCB holds University status ^ Despite its name, Imperial holds University status ^ "institutes and activities" – does not include students at colleges of the University ^ Holds university college status ^ "in England" – also has students in other parts of the UK
