UCU response to plans for student number controls

2 June 2020

Responding to government plans for student number controls at UK universities, UCU general secretary Jo Grady said: 'UCU will be studying these proposals from government closely. Our concern remains that they will simply push the problems created by coronavirus down the chain and lead to the financial instability of many institutions, as well as create problems for the devolved nations.

'Instead of a ham-fisted attempt to regulate the failed higher education market, students and staff need the government to stand behind universities, protect their current income and encourage cooperation.'
