Postgraduates and the Privatization of English Higher Education
Posted by Charlotte Frost

Just found this great article by Casey Brienza and Ernesto Priego from last November called: Postgraduates and the Privatization of English Higher Education

It starts: “On November 3, British universities minister David Willetts announced a proposal to raise the basic tuition fee cap for all UK and EU citizens to £6000, or up to £9000 under certain conditions, as early as 2012. This announcement comes in the wake of the Browne Report, which proposes to eliminate the block teaching grant received by all English universities for all non-STEM subjects. This, argues Stefan Collini in the London Review of Books, constitutes a de facto forced privatization of the university system.”

It’s well worth a read!
