Reshaping higher education – whose agenda?

Pre-1992 VCs rather cynical about government approach to reshaping universities

New Labour thought by most to be inconsistent: no ‘joined up’ approach, contradictory policies (variable fees + WP + penalise drop out; all to be world class universities but selective QR funding), reducing public contribution whilst increasing regulation: government not steering at a distance but actively ‘micromanaging’ cf 2009 ‘Higher Ambitions’ policy paper

Also several VCs expressed view that government does not really understand how universities work

Post-1992 VCs more equivocal about opposing government
