Universities UK's response to 'The Future of Higher Education'

Report
1 April 2003

On 22 January 2003, the Department for Education and Skills published its White Paper 'The Future of Higher Education'.

This invited responses to the proposals it contained. Universities UK has published its response. This seeks to address all the significant issues raised. It acknowledges that there are positive aspects of the White Paper, but also highlights concerns over the inadequate funding for teaching, the role of the new Office for Fair Access, the potential damage of increased research concentration, restrictions on university autonomy, and the position of UK higher education in Europe.
