Reclaiming our Universities

Reclaiming our Universities. This pamphlet by Professor Steven Schwartz, Vice Chancellor of Brunel University, argues that the higher education system must be freed from central state control if we are to rescue universities from their current slide into mediocrity. Using evidence from Australia and America, he demonstrates that a modern, market-led approach could also lead to a fairer system of access in Britain.

?Study now, pay later? or ?HE for free?? An assessment of alternative proposals for higher education finance. The UK government and the Conservative Party have announced starkly different policies for funding higher education (HE). Both want to see higher funding per student, but the government wants students to pay more, through an increase in deferred tuition fees. The Conservatives want to scrap tuition fees altogether. The government wants student numbers to increase significantly. The Conservatives are content for student numbers to remain roughly unchanged. This paper assesses the distributional and public finances implication of the proposals. By Alissa Goodman and Greg Kaplan.
