The New York Times points out, in an editorial entitled “Wrong Fix for British Universities” that attending a UK university will now cost twice as much, on average, as going to a public university in the United States. Budget cuts are necessary, it concludes, but “cutting must be done wisely, protecting investments in the economic future, like education. The sacrifices must be equitably shared. By any of those terms, this new policy is an utter failure.”
We are campaigning to promote and defend world-leading humanities and social science teaching and research in UK universities.
We believe in Higher Education teaching that is informed by the highest quality research, that engages with society, and is open to all on the basis of merit.
