Getting to Grips with Academic Standards, Quality and the Student Experience: Resources for UK Higher Education Institutions

This volume was written in 2011 at a time of dramatic change in the ways that HEIs in England were funded to teach students. Since then there have been wider structural and governance changes in England, Wales and Scotland. For good or ill, a more competitive market-place has developed between institutions, and greater quality and value for money will be the expectation of students and those funding them. All this will raise many new challenges for governing bodies of HEIs, and take them into territory they have not previously explored. This volume aims to help governors understand some of the challenges in navigating this new landscape.
