The student experience has been at the heart of the higher education debate for several years, but what are institutions doing to really improve it? How can you stay ahead of the game, and ensure that the UK can continue to be competitive in an increasingly global market.
The first year of higher tuition fees will clearly bring heightened demands, and many institutions are concerned about the prospect of an increased litigation from ever more discerning students. The absence of a clear response from the Westminster government in relation to their White Paper adds to the uncertainty at the time of the biggest shift in funding for the sector. Whilst ever more diverging policy from the 4 UK nations, means that making the case for UK higher education becomes more and more difficult.
