The College of Law welcomes the Review published today by Lord Browne and the opportunity to respond to the challenges of delivering high quality Higher Education in the UK.
Commenting on the Browne Review, Nigel Savage, CEO of The College of Law said:
"We hope the government will use the recommendations in this report to begin a timely and much needed re-think of Higher Education and the role of educational institutions in England to ensure that they all deliver to a contemporary agenda of employability, flexibility and diversity, something the College of Law is already recognised as excelling at."
"We also feel strongly that tertiary education must be delivered in a flexible way, for example, with students able to work and study part time, or by extending the academic year across the full calendar year. Only with these elements built into our education system will we be able to provide access to all those willing and qualified to benefit from it and to encourage and support diversity of background.
"We are excited by Lord Browne’s proposals. We are ready to embrace the challenge set out in the Browne Review and we look forward to the time when we can provide a wider range of educational opportunities to students, building on our current success. Lord Browne’s proposals will allow us to offer a world class education to many more students. We await the government’s response with interest.”
