Cardiff: General election briefing – examination of higher education fees & funding

  • 6 March 2024
  • 2pm to 4pm
  • Cardiff University

London Economics, with support from the Nuffield Foundation, have modelled the resource implications – for students, graduates and the Exchequer – of the current higher education funding systems in the four nations of the UK. The analysis aims to improve the wider understanding of the current fees and funding arrangements in each of the Home Nations, as well as the implications of potential changes to each of the systems. The analysis also includes an assessment of previous manifesto commitments in each home nation, to better inform voters of parties’ forthcoming election proposals.

HEPI is hosting a series of in-person events in each of the four Home Nations, to present the findings and to host a panel of speakers to discuss the future of higher education fees and funding. 

Join us on Wednesday 6 March 2024 from 2pm to 4pm at Cardiff University to welcome a panel of speakers including:

  • Professor Maria Hinfelaar, Vice-Chancellor, Wrexham University and Vice-Chair of Universities Wales
  • Dewi Knight, Director, PolicyWISE and former Specialist Adviser for Education Reform in the Welsh Government
  • Orla Tarn, President, NUS Wales
  • Melanie Rimmer, Director of Strategic Planning, Cardiff University
