The Higher Education and Research Bill is attempting to change some of the fundamental elements of the higher education sector in the UK. As such, it has required and received an extremely high level of scrutiny. Throughout the passage of this Bill we have worked with the government and Parliamentarians to improve the Bill on behalf on universities and students.
MillionPlus has welcomed the government’s efforts to improve upon the architecture of parts of the sector. However, it was our firm belief that much of the original Bill would have been harmful to one of the UK’s most successful and world-leading sectors, and we have been forceful in our attempts to ensure that the Bill that passes is as robust and fair as possible.
