British Government's Vision for Revamping Higher Ed

May 17, 2016

The Conservative government’s plan to revamp higher education in the United Kingdom was formally published in a new white paper on Monday. Among the proposals, the government has called for increasing competition and choice in the sector by making it easier for new higher education institutions to gain degree-awarding powers. The government also proposes linking future tuition increases to university teaching performance as measured by a new Teaching Excellence Framework.

Times Higher Education has published summaries of the proposed changes, as well as reaction from key players in the U.K.’s higher education sphere.
