Universities provide teaching that leads to qualifications such as bachelor's degrees, foundation degrees, master's degrees or higher education diplomas. The Universities industry has undergone a period of substantial change over the past five years. Constraints on the government's budget forced cuts in funding, and as a result, universities are now relying more on tuition fees and external research grants for their income. Funding from bodies such as research councils, charities, trusts and foundations comprise the majority of income for most universities.
Operators in the industry provide full and part-time teaching and training that leads to both undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications.
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.
