Higher Education Show survey shows concern over HE’s future

The event asked attendees thoughts on current and upcoming policies with surprising results

The interim results of over 300 HE and the wider public sector professionals reveals a high level of concern about the impact of UK’s decision to leave the EU, with more than 80% of respondents expecting negative impact on the higher education sector.

However when asked where they expect the quality of teaching across universities in the UK to be in 5 years’ time, 44% thought it’ll be above average, and 28% – among the best in the world.

One of key findings reveals that around a quarter of respondents feel not very well informed about the Higher Education White Paper “Success as a Knowledge Economy: Teaching Excellence, Social Mobility & Student Choice”, and 11% haven’t heard of it at all.

Other critical insights include:

·       88% rate teaching quality in universities across the UK as good or excellent

·       90% rate research quality in universities across the UK as good or excellent

·       Top 5 challenges facing the higher education sector across the UK today are:

o   Funding / revenue / resources

o   Student fees / costs

o   Government regulations / policies

o   Student experience

o   Graduate employability

The Higher Education Show, to be held on 11 October 2016 at London’s Olympia,  will provide best practice advice and case studies addressing the issues above – click here to view the agenda.
