Calls for evidence by Scottish & Welsh Governments on HE & widening access (25.9.2015)
CREID has responded to recent calls for evidence issues by the Scottish and Welsh Governments on higher education and widening access.
A paper "Student Funding and Widening Access to HK: Wales in UK Comparative Perspective" was prepared for the Review of Higher Education Funding and Student Finance Arrangements in Wales on the 24th July 2015. This was followed by another evidence paper by Susan Whittaker to inform the Diamond Committee of the cross-border student flows between Wales and England.
