Higher education in parliament

Yesterday the House of Commons Education Committee was provided sector insight on value for money from Ian Marshall (Coventry University), Gavan Conlon (London Economics) and Claire Crawford (University of Warwick).

Key points raised were:

  • Gavan Conlon – the complexity of the student finance system and the language used is problematic.
  • Ian Marshall – the term “graduate tax” should be used to replace tuition fees.
  • Claire Crawford – The post-18 review of education and funding review needs more depth in terms of further education and alternative routes.

The proceedings can be watched here.
