About This Report


After over a decade of government investment in the higher education system, universities and colleges are feeling uncertain about the future. Universities are concerned about the effect of rising fees on enrolment in postgraduate education, and government cuts to teaching funding from 2012-13. Postgraduate education receives a high level of public support and most colleges are publicly funded and operated on a non-profit basis. Privately funded institutions also exist and may be either non-profit or for-profit enterprises. Revenue is forecast to rise by just 2.0% in 2012-13 to reach £4.19 billion.

The industry includes universities and other institutions that offer postgraduate study (ISCED level 6). Programmes of study include the doctorate, taught and research masters, the Postgraduate Certificate in Education and other postgraduate diplomas and certificates.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
