What does UGC mean?
University Grants Committee was an advisory committee of the British government, which advised on the distribution of grant funding amongst the British universities. It was in existence from 1919 until 1989. Its functions have now largely been taken over by the higher education funding councils (HEFCE (England), SFC (Scotland), HEFCW (Wales), and the Department for Employment and Learning in Northern Ireland).
