Review of post-18 education and funding on higher education 2022

In February 2022, the UK government undertook a review of proposals for higher education reform, including student numbers and eligibility requirements, as well as setting out how the government plans to improve outcomes and rising costs and debt.

UCU's response made clear our belief that 'the fundamental problem lies with the highly marketised system of higher education that has been established over the past decade' and that 'an alternative way to ensure greater quality and equity is the abolition of student fees and the reintroduction of core public funding for teaching'.
