Department of Education and Skills
Third Level Expenditure
178. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the amount that was spent on the provision of counselling services at third level in each of the years from 2013 to 2017; and the amount that has been allocated for the year 2017-2018. [53613/17]
My Department allocates recurrent funding to the Higher Education Authority (HEA) for direct disbursement to the HEA institutions. The HEA allocates this as a block grant to institutions to cover teaching, research and supporting activities. The internal allocation of this grant is a matter for each institution.
However, details of expenditure incurred in respect of counselling services in the third level sector are outlined below as requested. Data in respect of the academic year 2016/17 is not immediately available, however, it is expected that it would be broadly in line with previous years.
