Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

When the global economic recession hit the world some 18 months ago, very few could predict the impact this would have on government spending on higher education. Higher education institutions in the United Kingdom face spending cuts. Notwithstanding, they are expected to deliver quality education with fewer resources. This article discusses challenges associated with the proposed funding cuts but also explores opportunities open to higher education institutions such as franchising and various forms of integration.
