The Decline and Fall of the British University

Ex lecturer Dr Mark Tarver on the declining teaching and research standards in British universities.

In my experience, many degrees are having their acedemic content diluted to be more attractive to potential students. I consider myself lucky to have taken a degree which had compulsary modules on hard-core foundation subjects that I would’ve avioded otherwise.

Ironically, a recent report from MPs criticised universities for failing to maintain standards, which is a byproduct of their own socialist policies for higher education reform.
