The UK's only independent think tank devoted to higher education.

David Watson

  • 9 February 2015

Along with many other people in higher education, we are today mourning the sad loss of Professor Sir David Watson, a prolific author and commentator on higher education, who was the first Vice-Chancellor of the University of Brighton and, more recently, Principal of Green Templeton College, Oxford.

Hepi is honoured to have been able to publish Sir David’s work, including two influential recent pamphlets. The first, Misunderstanding Modern Higher Education: eight “category mistakes”, was published in January 2012 and the second is shown below (click to access).

Few people have bridged the gap between the higher education institutions and higher education policymaking as successfully as Sir David and his loss will be felt throughout the sector.
