Philips, Andrew Fulton – Perspectives London policy and practice in higher education, 2004
Traditionally, universities were seen as academic communities in which students and staff were engaged in a scholarly partnership.

The law has reflected this…

Hall, David; Thomas, Harold – Perspectives London policy and practice in higher education, 2004

West, Andrew – Perspectives London policy and practice in higher education, 2004
The 2003 UK's government White Paper on the future of higher education (DfES 2003) included the broad statement that 'all students are entitled to be taught well, and to be given the support they need to learn effectively.'

Daynes, Gary; Esplin, Patricia; Kristensen, Kristoffer – Perspectives London policy and practice in higher education, 2004
Institutions of higher education are complicated, unwieldy things. This is part of their beauty, but it is also part of their difficulty, for their complications make them slow to change, even when the value of change is widely agreed upon.
