Four futures: Shaping the future of higher education in England

  • 6 June 2024
  • HEPI number Debate Paper 37

Former Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Chris Husbands responds to the financial and policy challenges facing the English higher education by sketching out four different plausible futures:

Scenario 1: The evolution of the present Scenario 2: Delivering the 2010 vision Scenario 3: A place-based tertiary system Scenario 4: A differentiated system

All four Scenarios confront difficult challenges, but they are designed to help university leaders as they wrestle with strategic and budgetary planning and as they consider the future development of the whole higher education sector.
