A new survey suggests that the University of Exeter contributes £600 million to the south west economy each year and that the region's universities generate 51,780 jobs.
The report by Universities UK (UUK) has, for the first time, quantified the economic benefit generated by the region’s 12 Universities. It says the total revenue of South West higher education institutions was £1.7 billion in 2011-12.

“The University of Exeter contributes not only financially to the region but also by providing a graduate workforce that raises productivity and stimulates economic growth.
The opportunity is now to work collaboratively with both business and government, exploiting and supporting regional specialisations, to deliver even more regional success in the future for the South West.”

Schools in Devon will receive millions of pounds for investment.
The schools' budget is one of the lowest in the country, but in the next an extra £16m will be made available in the next year - the equivalent of an extra £190 per pupil.
The Schools Minister has announced an extra £16.2 million in funding for schools in Devon. It means an increase of almost £200 per pupil in the authority, which is currently the sixth lowest-funded in the country.
A consultation document has also been published on a new way to make the allocation system fairer in future.
