The landscape of higher education (and, in particular, its funding schemes) in Britain is quite complex. And given recent developments it is likely to become even more variegated in the coming years. One way to stay abreast of these important developments is through consulting the Higher Education Funding Council (HEFCE) website, which is the agency responsible for making decisions about how much funding each higher education institution will receive from the United Kingdom's central government. Visitors to the site will want to peruse the six primary sections, which are dedicated to the council's main activities, including research, finance, good practice, widening participation, and learning and teaching. As with many organizations, the publication section is quite strong, as it features literally hundreds of documents (dating back to 1994) that deal with various aspects of higher education throughout Britain, including the financial performance of higher education, best practice models, and information on the research and assessment exercise for British universities and colleges.
