Purcell, Wendy – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2014
"Disruption"--while an evocative word triggering feelings of anxiety and perhaps even fear--also signals renewal and growth. The Higher Education (HE) sector in England has experienced some profound disruption over the years, and yet has emerged stronger and renewed in many ways. The impact of recent disruptive forces, from fees to the…

Talbot, Steve; Reeves, Alan; Johnston, James – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2014
An audit of economics provision shows that over the past decade economics has disappeared from large parts of the UK's higher education landscape, especially the post-1992 universities. In the north of Britain the binary system has effectively re-emerged leaving many potential students unable to study key subjects such as economics. Post-1992…

Tomlinson, Michael – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2013
This paper outlines core features of what it terms "consumer-based learning" and relates this to the context of increasing utilitarian goals and values of higher education.

Palfreyman, David – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2013

Fielden, John – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2013
This paper assesses the growing UK private sector in education and questions whether it is, as its supporters suggest, a valuable addition to an already diverse national system. An earlier "Perspectives" paper (Woodfield et al 2011) explored the emerging partnerships between public and private sectors. This follow-up explores the roles…

de Wit, Hans; Ferencz, Irina; Rumbley, Laura E. – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2013

Perhaps as important as the growing numbers of students is the fact that the traditional…

Raffe, David – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2013
Since 1998-99, when the Scottish Parliament, National Assembly for Wales and Northern Ireland Assembly were established, higher education policies appear to have diverged across the four "home countries" of the UK. This divergence is most visible in the contrasting tuition-fee and student-support arrangements for students entering HE in…
