    Abstract

    This study focuses on the impacts of Higher Education Institutions (HEI's) in the UK. There are a number of ways which HEI's impact their localities, and this study focuses on the economic impacts of the universities in particular. The study concentrates on the national scale and distribution of students within the UK, and impacts associated with the movement of students. The study uses quantitative ONS, DfES and CVCP data and studies to create an analysis of predicted direct impacts and GDP contributions in the UK. The study also looks at this data in the wake of new policy regarding HEI's and top up fees. The different aspects that are considered give a holistic overview of the UK on the whole. This therefore neither clouds the economic perspective nor the spatial aspect. This study concludes by predicting the effects of the recent government policy regarding HEI's, based on the findings of this study.
