Funding we allocate - Research England


How our funding is calculated

We calculate formula-based funding for higher education providers annually.

Our calculations may include:

  • the number of eligible academic staff at your higher education provider
  • the amount and quality of research done
  • the amount of research and knowledge exchange income your provider received.

We allocate funding on the basis of past quality and performance. Calculations are informed by:

You cannot apply for funding or request an amount.

We will contact your higher education provider in advance about how much formula-based funding your organisation will receive for the coming academic year (1 August to 31 July).
