Creating a 21st Century University lectures aim to engage and inform by exposure to views of key opinion leaders about the policies and practices that will shape higher education over the next five years.

Lecture synopsis
This lecture will explore not only the differences in policy relating to universities that may result from the 2015 election, but also the underlying issues that any new government will have to address, such as funding and regulation.  Nick will also suggest how universities might best prepare themselves to respond, irrespective of the election outcome.
