The proposals provoked widespread opposition in the form of street protests, occupations, and online campaigns. As the dust settles, Andrew McGettigan surveys the emerging brave new world of Higher Education. Displaying a stunning grasp of the policy details, he looks at the long term impact of the changes, which have been obscured by the focus on tuition fee increases. What will be the role of universities within society? How will they be funded? What kind of experiences will they offer students? Written in a clear and engaging style, The Great University Gamble outlines the architecture of the new policy regime, which many find difficult to grasp. It is an urgent warning that our Universities are being transformed from institutions of real learning to profit-driven degree factories."--Publisher's description."@en ;
