Higher education in the UK, and beyond, appears to be experiencing a period of unprecedented change. Together, global trends and national policies are generating a debate that is increasingly focussed on the cost of higher education. Tuition fees, research grants and ROI are the issues of the day.
It’s time to widen the debate. The Pearson Think Tank is pleased to present a range of bold, new ideas about the future of higher education. Leading experts, including a few less well-known voices, set out their vision for the future.
There is disagreement at times about priorities, but together the diverse, international perspectives represented in the Blue Skies collections demonstrate the qualities of higher education and how it can drive both economic growth and better wellbeing in the future.
