University challenges: Vice Chancellors give evidence to the Committee
14 November 2017
Is the Teaching Excellence Framework making student satisfaction a central objective? Can market mechanisms improve the higher education sector?
Tuesday 14 November in Committee Room 1, Palace of Westminster
- Sir Anthony Seldon, Vice Chancellor, Buckingham University
- Professor David Phoenix OBE, Vice Chancellor, London South Bank University
- Professor Mike Thomas, Vice-Chancellor, University of Central Lancashire
- Peter Horrocks CBE, Vice Chancellor, Open University
- Professor David Latchman CBE, Master, Birkbeck University
Questions the committee is likely to ask both panels include:
- Can higher education institutions deliver technical education?
- Should universities be able to charge different fees for different subjects?
- Are universities too dependent on fees from international students?
- How should the Government support for lifelong learning?
- What input should employers have on course design?
- How can the Government address the decline in part time education?
