Josh Freeman – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2024
This new Policy Note by HEPI and Kortext explores students' attitudes to AI. Based on a poll of 1,250 students through UCAS, we build a picture of the way students use and view generative AI technologies like ChatGPT and Google Bard. We find that the use of generative AI has become normalised in higher education, but that universities have so far…

Josh Freeman – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2024
Short, preparatory 'foundation year' courses have exploded in popularity in recent years, but they have drawn criticism from policymakers.

This HEPI Report asks whether foundation years are effective tools for widening access -- or whether, when it…

Thain, Marion – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2023
UK universities have, historically, been strong in the Humanities as well as other disciplinary areas. So the country is well-placed to benefit from the global shift towards interdisciplinary ways of working. This report looks at the current health of Humanities throughout the UK, in both teaching and research, and uncovers numerous examples of…

Venning, Edward – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2023
Size is the big unspoken problem in UK higher education. Small providers are stifled. Large universities enjoy oligopolistic advantage at the cost of agility. This damages institutional diversity and dynamism: the sector's ability to absorb new concepts, to grow and renew itself. For the first time, this report provides a full picture of small and…

Dandridge, Nicola – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2023
This Report by Nicola Dandridge considers the different approaches taken by higher education institutions, students, academics and policymakers towards the relationship between teaching and research. It notes how frequently the concept of research-informed teaching is invoked, yet how obscurely it is implemented. The relationship appears to mean…

Moss, Antony C. – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2023
In September 2022, the Institute for Fiscal Studies' Deaton Review drew attention to clear evidence that the UK compulsory education system is failing to tackle inequality.

Stephenson, Rose – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2023
The new Lifelong Loan Entitlement (LLE), due to start in 2025, is a major and positive improvement to how the student support system in England enables lifelong participation in higher education. It also has the prospect of commanding cross-party support, at least in broad design if not in the detail. However, in this timely Policy Note, Rose…

Fryer, Tom; Jones, Steven – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2023
In January 2023, UCAS announced their intention to reform the personal statement to a series of short questions.

Neves, Jonathan; Stephenson, Rose – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2023
Several of the key measures in this year's Student Academic Experience Survey have moved in a positive direction, but these movements have tended to be relatively small. Value-for-money perceptions have improved, but not statistically significantly, while there has been no change in the proportion who would choose the same course and institution…

Hillman, Nick – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2023
This Policy Note reveals a lack of understanding among employers of the post-study working rights of international students in the UK, even though the Graduate Route visa could provide the answer to many current skills shortages. The Graduate Route visa was introduced in 2021 and allows international students to stay in the UK to work for two…

Brown, Alexis – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2023
While universities already play an important role in attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) to the UK, there is a clear opportunity to expand and enhance this role through better collaboration between universities, local growth partners and government. This HEPI Report intends to begin a conversation -- within universities and across local…

Boggs, Andrew M. – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2023
The relationship between regulation and quality assurance of higher education in the United Kingdom (UK) has a long and complicated history, which contributed to the foundation of the UK Quality Assurance Agency for higher education (QAA) in 1997. After March 2023, the UK-wide QAA will stop being the Designated Quality Body (DQB) for English…
