8. Meeting Strategic Objectives III: Learning and Teaching – Size and Shape
OUCS is not directly affected by this strategic objective from the Corporate Plan as it does not run matriculated courses for students, nor is it involved in student recruitment. However, a shift in the size or demographic of the student body will possibly affect the demands on some of the services offered by OUCS (and potentially the infrastructure charge). This has emerged as a key finding from the Services Funding Working Group and it has been calculated that an extra ‘unit’ places a burden of c. £4,000 on OUCS, and an extra user £80 per annum. We will be ensuring that the core services can meet any up-turn assuming appropriate funding is found.
