Universities flying in to the dark.

‘Risky and irresponsible’

Much of the money from increased fees will replace funds the government has cut from university teaching budgets.

This will create a much more direct link between how many students choose a course and how much money the university has to run it.

The academics fear that the proposed model, where “the money follows the student”, may end up “depriving some courses of income streams, and decimating the funding for teaching in some institutions, without any coherent and publicly announced policy in regard to which of these institutions and courses the government believes should be left to fail.
