Tuesday 17th May, 4-6.30pm at London Metropolitan University, 166-220 Holloway Road, London, N7 6RP (Room No BEL1-09 in the main Tower Building)

Professor Claire Callender, Birkbeck College and Institute of Education, University of London.

A critical assessment of the Government’s reforms of student funding – all change or no change?

This paper will examine how student financial support has changed over time and critically analyse the Government’s planned reforms, locating them within a historical policy perspective.

Dr Vincent Carpentier, Institute of Education, University of London

Public-private substitution of funding and provision in higher education: national and global implications

This paper will explore the historical connections and tensions between funding, equity and quality policies in HE with a particular focus on the origins and implications of public-private funding in the global context.

Tea and coffee will be available at 4pm and the event will start at 4.15. At 6pm, there will be an opportunity to continue informal discussions of the issues raised in both papers over a glass of wine or juice.
