The latest report from the Higher Education Policy Institute, “A guide to the removal of student number controls” was published on 18th September 2014.
For managers in SUs wanting to understand the latest dynamics in the HE recruitment marketplace, it’s essential reading. Supporting officers to ask questions about the University’s UG numbers strategy is critically important.
As a reminder, in December last year universities were caught by surprise when George Osborne announced student number controls would end in England. This new HEPI blue book:
1. considers why the announcement was made and whether it will happen as planned;
2. explains what the changes could mean for the sector and individual institutions; and
3. looks at the budget pressures that mean spending on each student is likely to fall.
