HE Consumer revolution? Be careful what you wish for

leave a comment »

The UK Government Department for Business, Innovations and Skills, within which responsibility for universities falls, has released a new framework (strategic direction) document for Higher Education. It’s called ‘Higher Ambitions‘. The emphasis is on competition, markets and students as consumers.

I have little awareness of alternative models for funding higher education and to be honest, you have to look pretty hard.¬† But Wes Streeting (NUS President) makes sense when he responds, “be careful what you wish for“.
