Higher Education Funding

(November 16, 2010)

North West MPs – Steve included – met today with Malcolm McVicar, Vice Chancellor of the University of Central Lancashire, to hear his views on the Government’s Higher Education reforms and their likely impact upon the local economy. 

Dr McVicar is a fierce and vocal critic of the Coalition’s current HE policy, writing recently, “I genuinely believe that Browne [the review of Higher Education which informed the policy] will ensure English higher education increasingly becomes the preserve of the more affluent.”

See the Comment page, for Steve’s recent thoughts on University Tuition Fees.
