1. This consultation seeks views about changes to student number controls and teaching funding policy for implementation from 2013-14.
2. The proposals cover all aspects of our teaching grant except the method for phasing out the subject-related elements of funding for students who began their courses before 1 September 2012 which has already been agreed following consultation in 2011 ('Teaching funding and student number controls: Consultation on changes to be implemented in 2012-13', HEFCE 2011/20).
3. We aim to continue to ensure a smooth transition to the new finance arrangements for higher education introduced by Government from 2012-13.
4. We encourage responses to the consultation from all higher education providers, including potential providers of higher education and those we do not currently fund, because the developments we propose may affect them in the future.
