Rt Hon Lord Lilley

    Mr. Lilley: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills (1) how many students were enrolled in full-time higher education courses at UK universities and colleges in each year since 1990; how many of those students were from other EU countries; and how many were from outside the EU; [193669]

    (2) how many students from other EU countries studied at UK universities in each year since 1997; what the aggregate cost of tuition was for those students; and how much those students and their sponsors contributed towards that cost. [193670]

    Dr. Howells [holding answer 25 October 2004]: The student figures are shown in the table. The Department does not have either the aggregate cost of tuition for EU domiciled students at British universities or the private contribution to fees of these students.
