The article reports that the Higher Education Funding Council for England is to give direct support for e-learning in universities instead of funding UKeU, the central body charged with supplying courses from the British universities to foreign students. UKeU is now in discussions with students and its university partners to restructure its agreements with them. What UKeU is doing at the moment is negotiating individually with institutions about the courses and, obviously, it will vary from case to case. The council's board announced that UKeU was to be restructured in February, after it was revealed that the organisation had spent £28m while attracting just 900 students. In April, the board announced that funding for UKeU had been frozen and the body was being restructered.
