This briefing provides an overview of proposals outlined by the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) on the higher education Green Paper, Fulfilling Our Potential: Teaching Excellence, Social Mobility and Student Choice.
A consultation on the proposals is open until 15 January 2016. Members can reply individually to the consultation online. We plan to submit a response to the consultation, focused on particular areas of relevance for health education and research. Comments on the consultation should be sent to Rachel Craine, Senior Policy Officer.
