Your elected student officers asked the University to provide information on how the fees you pay are spent across the breadth of activities and services provided.
In their reply they state that:
“The majority of the University’s total income (76%) is from University fees. As a registered charity all our income is used to fulfil our principle objectives – to provide higher education and conduct research.
This [the attached image] show how your annual £9,250 University fees (for undergraduate home/EU students) are spent. International students pay higher fees, with additional fees going towards the additional recruitment and support costs.
