Students and fees: implications of the Browne recommendations

  • 15 February 2011
  • House of Commons

The issues around student financing have dominated debate from the moment student fees were introduced in 1998.  The Independent Review of Higher Education Funding and Student Finance, chaired by Lord Browne, has made its recommendations to the government on the future of fees policy and financial support for full and part time undergraduate students, and the government has produced its reply – in effect accepting the essential aspects of the Browne proposals.  How effective will these recommendations be in terms of helping to establish a sustainable funding model for universities and in ensuring an equitable balance between public funding and private benefit?

Speakers: Professor Nicholas Barr, Professor of Public Economics, London School of Economics; Professor David Eastwood, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Birmingham and a member of the Independent Review of Higher Education Funding and Student Finance
