To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what assessment she has made of the Higher Education and Funding Council's progress in delivering the support for part-time and flexible higher education as set out in the Government's Higher Education Funding for 2016-17 letter of March 2016.

The Higher Education Funding Council for England is supporting our ambition in supporting part-time and flexible learning.

They have retained additional funding for part-time undergraduate and postgraduate taught students as part of their teaching funding method to recognise the additional costs of supporting these students, and from 2017 this will be allocated as a separate student premium.
