Future of HE: Centre for Engaged Global Higher Education

Lead Research Organisation: University of Oxford
Department Name: Education

Abstract

The last two generations have seen a remarkable world-wide transformation of higher education (HE) into a core social sector with continually expanding local and global reach. Most nations are moving towards, or have already become, 'high participation' HE systems in which the majority of people will be educated to tertiary level. In the UK HE is at the same time a pillar of science and the innovation system, a primary driver of productivity at work, a major employer and a mainstay of cities and regions, and a national export industry where 300,000 non-EU students generated over £7 billion in export-related earnings for the UK in 2012-13. In 2012, 60 per cent of UK school leavers were expected to graduate from tertiary education over the lifetime, 45 per cent at bachelor degree level, compared to OECD means of 53/39 per cent. Higher education and the scientific research associated with universities have never been more important to UK society and government. HE is large and inclusive with a key role in mediating the future. Yet it is poorly understood. Practice has moved ahead of social science. There has been no integrated research centre dedicated to this important part of the UK. The Centre for Engaged Global Higher Education (CEGHE), which has been funded initially for five years by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), now fills that gap.

On behalf of the ESRC CEGHE conducts and disseminates research on all aspects of higher education (HE), in order to enhance student learning and the contributions of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to their communities; develop the economic, social and global engagement of and impacts of UK HE; and provide data resources and advice for government and stakeholder organisations in HE in the four nations of the UK and worldwide. CEGHE is organised in three closely integrated research programmes that are focused respectively on global, national-system and local aspects of HE. CEGHE's team of researchers work on problems and issues with broad application to the improvement of HE; develop new theories about and ways of researching HE and its social and economic contributions; and respond also to new issues as they arise, within the framework of its research programmes. An important part of CEGHE's work is the preparation and provision of data, briefings and advice to national and international policy makers, for HEIs themselves, and for UK organisations committed to fostering HE and its engagement with UK communities and stakeholders. CEGHE's seminars and conferences are open to the public and it is dedicated to disseminating its research findings on a broad basis through published papers, media articles and its website and social media platform.

CEGHE is led by Professor Simon Marginson, one of the world's leading researchers on higher education matters with a special expertise in global and international aspects of the sector. It works with partner research universities in Sheffield, Lancaster, Ireland, Australia, South Africa, Netherlands, China, Hong Kong SAR, Japan and USA. Among the issues currently the subject of CEGHE research projects are inquiries into ways and means of measuring and enhancing HE's contribution to the public good, university-industry collaboration in research, the design of an optimal system of tuition loans, a survey of the effects of tuition debt on the life choices of graduates such as investment in housing and family formation, the effects of widening participation on social opportunities in HE especially for under-represented social groups, trends and developments in HE in Europe and East Asia and the implications for UK HE, the emergence of new HE providers in the private and FE sectors, the future academic workforce in the UK and the skills that will be needed, student learning and knowledge in science and engineering, and developments in online HE.

Planned Impact

The Centre for Engaged Global Higher Education (CEGHE) will conduct research designed to transform our understanding of higher education (HE) in its economic and social contexts. In the public and connected environment in and around HE, CEGHE's research and findings will interest government and policy makers, public agencies, stakeholder organisations in HE, associated sectors (e.g. employers and professions), HEIs, the media and public, international agencies such as the OECD, and many HEI leaders and policy makers-throughout the world.

The main strategy to achieve ongoing impact is CEGHE's structured collaborations with Associated Organisations (AOs). At second stage submission the AOs included GuildHE, Higher Education Academy, Higher Education Policy Institute, Institute for Public Policy Research, National Centre for Universities and Business, National Union of Students, Social Market Foundation, Society for Research into Higher Education, Times Higher, Universities and College Union, Universities UK, Universities UK International Unit, Which?, and WonkHE. If CEGHE is funded more AOs may sign, including public HE agencies. The majority of the CEGHE Advisory Board (chaired by Professor Sir Robert Burgess) will be AOs,

AOs can be engaged in every stage: project design; on project committees; in preparing benchmarks for assessing impact; as participants in some data collection; and providing critical feedback on draft papers and the preparation of materials for different audiences. The release of findings will be double- or multi-badged with AOs and they will share the seminar programme and leadership of CEGHE conferences. In turn they will gain access to CEGHE research findings, influence the applications of the research, and position themselves effectively in subsequent national discussion. By working with CEGHE 'in the kitchen' they will be better placed to use its outputs. The AOs will enhance CEGHE's sensitivity to HEIs, policy makers and interest groups, and trigger many new initiatives in research and applications. They will be an invaluable source of informed comment at every stage of CEGHE's work. In addition, some organisations such as HEA have major data repositories of their own that may be accessible for CEGHE research purposes.

For policy makers and government, CEGHE will offer evidence-based data across a range of key issues in HE, and scope to enter a research based public discussion on an informed basis. Some projects will be of immediate policy interest, e.g. research on the growing private sector in HE, a data-based study of relations between financing and participation, a survey comparing graduates with and without debt, and the comparative international metrics on HE-industry engagement. CEGHE will prepare the ground with policy makers using selective briefings, and release main project findings at public events, engaging government ministers and officials. CEGHE's capacity to impact policy and government through research will often depend on the prior reception of its findings among stakeholders and in the media and public discussion. Media-significant data are more likely to gather public impact and shape policy thought. CEGHE will focus closely on media as this is the best way to reach large numbers of stakeholders. The Times Higher, one of the AOs, will co-sponsor seminars and conferences, and provide a principal medium for publicising outcomes and building stakeholder involvement.

CEGHE will sustain a seminar series in each Research Programme, combined 'Key Debates in HE' seminars and Early Career Researcher seminars, and three conferences, involving stakeholders and policy makers. Events will be held across UK including partner universities of Sheffield and Lancaster. The CEGHE website will be an ESRC research shop front for UK HE; continuously updated, it will be the Centre's point of dissemination and public data exchange, and a broad source of information about UK Higher Education.

ES/M010082/1 12/11/2015 31/12/2018 £4,931,092
ES/M010082/2 Transfer ES/M010082/1 01/01/2019 29/04/2021 £2,228,890
 
Description Project ES/M010082/2 is in direct continuity with project ES/M010082/1 and the report in that section of ResearchFish applies here also. They are the same project, except that the lead AO moved from UCL to Oxford at the beginning of 2019, triggering the new award number.

This award (ES/M010082/2) finished on 30 April so less than two months is included in the reporting period. However, eight of the ten projects in the Transition Centre (award ES/T014768/1) are in continuity with projects pursued under ES/M010082/1 and ES/M010082/2. For this reason, award ES/M010082/2 is stated here as 'still active' even though technically it has finished.

Further detail is provided in the entry under 'Key Findings' for ES/M010082/1

The academic outputs from this whole continuum of work peak in the next eighteen months. While a very large volume of papers and books has already been produced, as ResearchFish demonstrates, and notwithstanding (and also because of) the long pipeline for much of CGHE's work, it is still too early to be definitive about either the main academic findings or the primary actual and expected impacts from the findings.

The entry for project ES/M010082/1 provides details of CGHE's ongoing engagement with policy makers and practitioners. This continued as stated in ES/M010082/2, and in most of CGHE's projects the same active engagement has continued into the Transition Centre phase (award ES/T014768/1). While the research on income contingent loans systems, the academic profession, and university-industry links in research, has not continued into the Transition Centre phase, two new projects have been added - on the role of research in higher education, and the role of international organisations and global corporations and philanthropy in higher education in the developing world. But engagement in such ongoing project areas as graduate employment, the effects of student loans on graduate decision making, and the public good role of international education, continues. In the case of the project on income contingent loans, while the research phase is over, impact-related activities have continued, notably in the success of CGHE's research team in designing and modelling the income contingent loans system adopted by Colombia in late 2021.

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the use and impact of the award as follows: (1) some data collection has been delayed, mostly that entailing site visits for field work; (2) it has not been possible to hold face to face events of dissemination purposes. Fortunately however the centre has made very effective use of webinar formats and online conferences and has achieved its maximum global visibility during the pandemic period. CGHE now runs a twice-weekly webinar on higher education issues, regularly drawing 40-200 people from across the world (sometimes more) depending on topic. This has provided a very good format for dissemination of CGHE project findings, as well as enabling CGHE to platform many other researchers and topics. The webinars have been marked by the consistently high quality of the presentations and the excellent quantity and quality of participant audience contributions in the 20-30 minute Q&A in each session. After two years - and despite the entry of many new players into the webinar space - CGHE has increased its participant audiences overall.

Impact Vocational Education and Training (VET) can play a much bigger role in Smart Specialisation Strategies than has so far been considered. This is because VET encompasses skill development as well as innovation diffusion and applied research - which together can have a more direct impact on sustainable economic growth, especially of less developed regions. VET also contributes to addressing the demographic challenges which Europe faces, responding to the needs for re-skilling and up-skilling through non-formal training and at different levels of formal VET.

Title Construction of event history file of student loan repayment histories in the United States 
Description The national data about student borrowing in the United States is contained in the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) controlled the the US Department of Education. This data has now been added to a nationally representative sample of students from the Beginning Postsecondary Study (BPS) of students entering college in 1996 and in 2004. We have taken the numerous NSLDS files and created a panel of 20 years of repayment history for the 1996 cohort, and 12 years of repayment history for the 2004 cohort. In addition, all the information about students contained in the BPS related to their pre-, during, and post-college activities has been matched to the repayment histories. By combining the pre-college, collegiate activities, with the repayment histories we can now what affects the occurrence of repayment (or not), the timing of repayment, and how events that happen during college affect repayment. To our knowledge, no one has ever put all this data together. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Year Produced 2019 
Provided To Others? No  
Impact Policy makers from the National Center for Education Statistics are keenly interested in our development of this database. Not only have we demonstrated how the very messy NSLDS data can be cleaned to make is useful for policy research, we have found anomalies in the raw files that NCES needs to address. Thus, the federal government agencies responsible for the NSLDS have been informed about problems with their data.

Description MOOC in Arabic on Edraak: 'Teaching Online: Be Ready Now!', running continuously, a free and open online course, 
Organisation Lebanese University
Country Lebanon 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution Researched, designed, developed, supported, and evaluated a 2-week, 8 hour course to support teachers in converting their classroom teaching to an online learning environment.
Collaborator Contribution Our partners at LU collaborated on all stages of the course and helped to promote it within Lebanon. The Edraak platform also contributed by promoting it across the MENA region
Impact The course attracted >47,000 enrolments to Dec 2020, from countries across the MENA region, many of them LICs. The Jordan Ministry of Education ran their own instance of the course for their teachers. Due to our collaboration with the Lebanese University over the last two years on a previous Edraak course, the academic staff have been learning about online learning and have understood its importance and value. The pandemic meant that many courses run by universities had to go online, and the University was well placed to do this. The course embeds the Learning Designer tool (ES/F042175/1) as a key element of the exercises in the course. The Lebanese University has been lobbying the Government to relax their refusal to recognise online degrees, and new legislation is now being considered by Parilament. These courses achieved capacity building impact in MENA and across the world, and conceptual impact by reframing the debates around the potential of online learning and MOOCs, especially at the Lebanese American University and Lebanese University, and our collaborating NGOs. We also changed the learning design orientation of Edraak (https://www.edraak.org) to incorporate social and collaborative learning into the platform now adopted across all their MOOCs, with >2m learners.

Title MOOC for teachers in all sectors 'Blended and Online Learning Design' on FutureLearn 
Description This larger-scale online course brings to teachers in all sectors video exemplars and case studies, contributed by teachers from all sectors, illustrating ways of using blended and online learning within their courses. The online course employs the research-based tool developed at UCL Knowledge Lab, the Learning Designer, to enable teachers to adopt learning designs from others, which they can adapt, or create their own, receiving automated feedback on the nature of the learning experience they have designed. Teachers can share their design with others, for them to adopt and adapt. The course orchestrates two peer review activities where participants review each other's designs according to a give rubric. They may nominate their own or other's designs to be listed in the 'curated designs' section of the Learning Designer website. In this way, we begin to explore how well this community operates to develop collaborative community knowledge of how to teach online. This is a key focus of our CGHE2 research programme. Some 6,000 teachers are enrolled, from all sectors, and many countries. The course runs continuously for the first 6 months, prior to review.

It has attracted >46,000 participants, from across the MENA region. The course continues to run. 
Type Of Technology Webtool/Application 
Year Produced 2020 
Impact The idea for the course arose from our previous collaboration with the Lebanese University, They wanted to help teachers with the process of moving their teaching entirely online. Based on our previous collaboration (see the Transforming Education...) we were able to work together online during lockdown, and within one month we were able to develop the course as a response to the pandemic emergency when all schools were closed. The course was very well received. In the post course survey, for example, 94% of the respondents said that the course changed the way they and their colleagues think or make future planning methods for online learning. And already, soon after the course, 49% reported that their students had benefitted from what they acquired on the course. The Ministry of Education in Jordan endorsed the course and adopted it for reference within their website.

Results and Impact Eileen Kennedy and Mustafa Habib (Edraak) reported on the ways that the learning design approach developed through research in CGHE and RELIEF has transformed Arabic MOOC design on the Edraak platform. The high levels of engagement with the MOOCs produced using this approach has led to the Conversational Framework and learning design tools developed at UCL Knowledge Lab being adopted by all course designers at Edraak. The article provided links to the Educators for Change MOOC on Edraak and the Transforming Education in Challenging Environments course on FutureLearn so that readers could experience the approach first hand.

Overall participation in the UK is moving towards 50 per cent of the school leaver age group but non-white students, state school students and students from disadvantaged regions of the UK are under-represented in academically elite universities. This pattern affects entry, completion and outcomes in graduate labour markets. Access to the University of Oxford is a persistent debate. Must universities choose between high standards and socially equitable admissions, or can we have both? What is the scope for change?

We demonstrated content in the MOOC and led discussion to deepen participants' understanding. Feedback showed participants developed understanding and skills and were committed to implementing these in their practice as well as using the materials from the MOOC to train other teachers. Participants recorded some of their experiences in the video linked below. We will develop the design of the workshop as a model to implement in different contexts to facilitate participants' engagement in MOOCs.

Results and Impact A blog summarising the research from the 'First in Family' work using Next Steps.

We use 'Next Steps', a longitudinal sample of English children born in 1990, who entered sixth form in 2006. They were followed every year through their secondary schooling and again later in early adulthood at age 25. The longitudinal nature of the data allows us to control in a detailed way for the children's family background, income, and their prior attainment in order to isolate the association between parental education and their child's education. We find that:

FiF young people make up 18 percent of a recent cohort in England, comprising nearly two-thirds of all university graduates
Comparing individuals with no parental higher education, ethnic minorities and those with higher levels of prior attainment are more likely to experience intergenerational educational mobility and become a FiF
Once at university, those who are FiF are more likely to study Law, Economics and Management and less likely to study other Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities than students whose parents are university graduates
FiF students are less likely to study at and graduate from elite universities such as those belonging to the Russell Group, which are considered more prestigious, research intensive institutions
FiF have a higher probability of not completing their degree, even after prior educational attainment, individual characteristics and socio-economic status are taken into account

Results and Impact Professor Marginson will be joined by Professor Mary Stuart CBE, Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln and David Palfreyman OBE, the Bursar of New College Oxford and Director of the Oxford Centre for Higher Education Policy Studies (OxCHEPS).

The book focuses on the forms of institutional governance that critically shape the culture, creativity and academic outcomes of higher education. It provides a new, updated and research based account of the changing face of the governance of British higher education. Historically, British universities were deemed amongst the most, if not the most, autonomous in Europe, with governance rooted in their collegial disciplinary structures. This assessment must now be decisively revised, although the belief systems deriving from it remain buried deep in university culture.

The panel will discuss the investigation of the governance of higher education in the four UK nations and detail how global, national and system level pressures have changed the face both of the external governance of higher education institutions and how universities govern themselves.

Seminar topic:
Drawing on decolonial studies (Mignolo, 2003; Quijano, 1993, 1992), this presentation problematises the term 'international collaboration' in higher education studies with a special focus on Latin America.

In a context of competition for financial resources and prestige and where there are economical and epistemic asymmetries, international collaboration can be seen as problematic.

This presentation focuses on international collaboration in the form of co-authorship of papers in the WoS and SciELO indexes on the topic of higher education reforms within and outside Latin America. Reflections about epistemic circuits and epistemic identities are offered.

Primary Audience Postgraduate students
Results and Impact Seminar given at UCL Institute of Education by Davide Donina, University of Bergamo
Seminar topic:
In this seminar Dr Donina states that since the 1990s, reforms of managerial practices in higher education settings have been significant and far-reaching. Among the policy instruments targeted by the global higher education reform agenda there has been the central governance structures of universities, which are pivotal in increasing universities' social responsibility and in prompting their effective response to socio-economic challenges.

Many studies analysed and compared the policy changes to central university governance structure, but only few have sought to examine the efficacy of these changes. In addition, the available studies about board composition, size, and structure provide inconsistent empirical evidence regarding the impact of board structure on organizational performance in both public and private organisations.

Dr Donina work aims to fill into this literature stream and addresses this gap by investigating whether the characteristics of governing bodies influence innovation output measured as patent activity and spinoff creation. The research question addressed is therefore: Does the institutional governance model of the university affect innovation?

Primary Audience Postgraduate students
Results and Impact Seminar given at UCL Institute of Education by:
Eileen Kennedy, UCL Institute of Education
Diana Laurillard, UCL Institute of Education

Seminar topic:
Initial excitement about MOOCs was largely based on their capacity to recruit 10s of 1000s of participants. The MOOC platforms enabled massive cohorts of participants from outside of the university to engage with university teaching and research and the engagement could be tracked by the platforms themselves. However, it quickly became clear that MOOC participants differed markedly from the profile and patterns of engagement that characterise typical undergraduate students, and measures such as course completion, which might be meaningful for the evaluation of undergraduate courses, were less so in the context of MOOCs. To evaluate the success of a MOOC we need a new way to track the value that participants gain from taking part. Existing evaluation methods tend to focus on quantitative analysis of analytics from the platform, but these measures tell us little about the perceived value to participants. Moreover, since many MOOC participants are professionals, such as teachers or healthcare workers, and are undertaking continual professional development in MOOCs, we also need to track how they use their learning to impact the lives of others, such as students or patients, or in their own professional development activities, which can present challenges for evaluation.

In this presentation Eileen Kennedy and Diana Laurillard will consider a mixed method approach that carefully examines different sources of evidence to show different types of value created on a MOOC. They present a MOOC value creation framework that can be used with the full range of professional development courses, to give a more rounded evaluation of the impact of MOOC initiatives.

Results and Impact Dr Neil Harrison from University of Oxford gave a seminar at UCL IoE for CGHE.
The conventional view has been that progression to HE is a risky pathway for disadvantaged young people in England, both financially and socially. However, even as the costs of HE have increased and the returns have become more questionable, demand from disadvantaged young people has counterintuitively risen. The nature of the youth labour market has changed, with greater precarity even as more jobs have become 'graduate', while a modest diversification of HE has made it appear somewhat more inclusive. This talk will argue that disadvantaged students increasingly view HE as a form of insurance rather than investment, with the risks of early entry into the labour market rising faster.

Results and Impact Presentation by Krystian Szadkowski - Drawing on the results from the recent research on the idea of the public good in Polish higher education this paper addresses the culturally specific modes of constructing the public good and the common good by actors within the field.

The concepts in question are often used interchangeably as they both express an extensive normative call.

This presentation discusses the corrupted forms of the common good, its ethos-related, communal and material aspects against the empirical material to provide a clearer view of the differences between the understanding of the higher education as the common good and the public good.

Results and Impact Presentation by Vikki Boliver, Durham University - In this seminar, Professor Vikki Boliver lays out the ethical case for reducing entry requirements for disadvantaged learners, arguing that fairness is best conceptualised in terms of distributive rather than procedural justice. Drawing on the findings of research projects funded by the ESRC and the Scottish Funding Council, she shows that entry requirements could be reduced significantly for disadvantaged learners without 'setting them up to fail', but that universities are often conflicted about reducing entry requirements given the prestige attached to admitting only high achievers who can be expected to succeed at university as a matter of course.

Results and Impact Presentation by Dr Jana Bacevic, University of Cambridge - This talk explores the apparent paradox of critique in and of contemporary universities. In the past years, there has been no shortage of narratives and publications describe, interpret, and denounce what has been framed as the undue 'incursion' of economic and market-making logic into higher education. Despite the proliferation of these forms of critique, it seems as if academics have been powerless in stopping the neoliberal transformation of institutions of knowledge production, with sustained forms of resistance rare or completely absent. Drawing on the work of theorists like Luc Boltanski and Judith Butler, and author's research into the political economy of critique in UK higher education, the talk offers a sociological reading of the relationship between intellectual and political interventions in the current historical moment.

Results and Impact Presentation by Michael Shattock and Aniko Horvath, UCL IOE - In 1992 the UK Government passed legislation which devolved the funding and management of higher education to Funding Councils in Wales and Scotland, leaving a new Higher Education Funding Council for England responsible for England (Northern Ireland had always been administered separately). In 1998 further legislation devolved large areas of government from Whitehall to Wales and Scotland and created new devolved governments, including one in Northern Ireland, all of which had powers of governance and funding over the institutions of higher education under their control. In a little over 25 years four separate national higher education systems have emerged with considerable divergencies from what once might have been seen as an English model. Indeed England can now look like the outlier when compared to the other three systems. The paper will describe and explore the changes that have taken place and assess the impact they have had on what had previously been a unified UK higher education system.

Who do our universities belong to? Are they democratic? What would universities look like if they were open access? In this panel discussion we discuss alternative futures for higher education.

After four decades of neoliberal higher education policy we explore how an alternative system could work and what it should look like. We discuss what would be needed to make structural changes to open up and democratize our universities and how this would fit within broader social and economic changes.

There is an established literature on factors which motivate student country destination choices. While a range of host country conditions are considered, the policy environment does not feature prominently. Utilising a body of research on policy crisis management, this presentation analyses the implications of crises for changes in students' willingness to study in particular countries. Examples are drawn from crises relating to: the UK's exit from the EU; Indian students' safety in Australia; and discrimination against Chinese students in New Zealand. The three crises are categorised and compared and the implications of the comparison for scholarship and policy are examined.

Results and Impact Dr Aline Courtois, University of Bath
In both the UK and Ireland, campaigns were recently launched to increase the participation of local students in international mobility programmes, such as those offered under the Erasmus+ umbrella. These initiatives take particular significance in a context of graduate market congestion, and increased emphasis on employability as a mission for the higher education sector. How is the ideal 'mobile' student constructed through these national and institutional discourses? How do students respond to this emerging mobility imperative?

Based on a two-year study conducted in Ireland, the paper draws on Bourdieu and Foucault to examine this apparent push towards mass participation in short-term exchange programmes. In particular, it examines the logics at play in institutional discourses and practices around outgoing student mobility, outlining how these align with dominant discourses promoting individualistic, voluntarist attitudes to labour (hyper)mobility over the life-course, and how students adapt to, resist or re-appropriate these expectations.

Results and Impact Featuring research with Dr Shiona Chillas (University of St Andrews).

The number of foreign academics in the UK has been increasing over the last forty years, and currently comprises a third of UK's academic profession (Lenihan and Witherspoon 2018). Existing research on migrant scholars, however, tends to focus on international careers and analyse mobility as a resource for career development and progression. Distinctively, our paper seeks to understand how the academic profession has responded to the influx of migrant scholars.

We draw on the concept of social closure in the sociology of professions, and on empirical data from 62 semi-structured interviews with foreign-born academics working in 13 British universities. Findings show that academia has developed three social closure strategies - integration, exclusion and subordination - to control the absorption of migrant academics. The profession enacts these strategies to subtly regulate access, work and intra-professional relationships, selectively incorporating foreign-born academics and maintaining the status quo.

The paper demonstrates nuances underlying the influx of migrant academics into the UK, suggesting that patterns of inclusion shape migrant scholars' working lives.

This contribution re-examines the transnational circulation of policy schemes relative to Higher Education governance. It focuses on the relations between international and European organisations (Council of Europe, European Commission, OECD, UNESCO), characterised by competition followed by cooperation and international division of tasks. In order to explain the conditions under which higher education / knowledge policies circulate, we need to take into account not only the political and ideational positioning of these IOs but also the material aspects of their relationships. IOs appear as paradoxical arenas of knowledge circulation. Deemed as powerful and influent, they face unequal access to resources and uncertainty. While acknowledging their role as global players, I will stress their (inter)dependence and the multiple ways they struggle to maintain their position.

The Chilean higher education is characterised by unique features that make the concept of ´public' a multidimensional and fuzzy concept. Through an empirical study that involved interviews with academics and authorities from two public universities, the meanings attached to the production of 'public goods' by universities were examined. Findings show a certain similarity of meanings in relation to professional formation, knowledge production and the role of the university in promoting social equity and pluralism, although with different nuances. Also, the production of public goods is analysed in the light of the relationships between universities, the State and the market from which ambivalent meanings emerged. On the one hand, a naturalization of the idea of market in higher education appears and is contested by some academics, and on the other hand, academics are concerned that the State does not enlist public universities in the pursuit of a national agenda. Questions about the idea of the 'public' in relation to marketized contexts are discussed.

Results and Impact Dr Miguel Antonio Lim, University of Manchester
This seminar discusses how university ranking organisations generate and preserve their business models in higher education. It will consider how the rankings organisations and ranking editors interact with a variety of audiences through an analysis of their social media accounts. The analysis covers close to 13,000 social media entries from the Twitter account of the three 'best-known' international ranking organisations: the THE, the QS and the Shanghai ARWU. There is particular attention to the case of the Times Higher Education, which contributes the largest proportion of entries in the dataset, as an archetype of a ranking and educational consulting organization.

The analysis is based on an earlier framework that aims to characterise rankers' 'weak expertise' (Lim, 2018) and will show how university rankers claim a demand for their services and how they respond to their critics. Through the analysis, the seminar contributes to the discussion around the increasing 'industrialisation' of university rankings and the development of ranking associated services including conferences and summits, data consulting, and brand management services. The variety of these services highlights the increasing number and also differentiation of ranking audiences and the ways in which university rankers cultivate target markets.

Results and Impact Sally Hancock, University of York


Internationally, governments have pledged to increase the number of PhD holders and support their transition into employment outside academia. These policies emerge from a commitment to the knowledge economy and human capital theory, which assert the necessity of knowledge-intensive labour to future prosperity. However, relative to the wealth of evidence on first-degree holders, understanding of the economic, social and cultural contributions of PhDs is considerably undeveloped.

This study made use of the Destination of Leavers of Higher Education Longitudinal Survey (Long DLHE), which records employment circumstances three and a half years after graduation. Long DLHE data provide the most comprehensive record of PhD employment currently available in the UK. The analysis reveals that the vast majority of PhD holders will leave the academic sector after graduation. However, employment outcomes are highly variable by discipline. Significantly higher proportions of graduates from Russell Group universities, in scientific fields, secure research roles outside of academia, with prior qualifications and gender having some effect in these outcomes.

The implications of these findings will be discussed, as well as the limitations of the DLHE dataset. It will be argued that there is a pressing need for richer demographic and decision-making data from PhD holders, along with a more extensive, longitudinal view of the careers they forge.

This paper examines inequalities in the match between student quality and university quality using linked administrative data from schools, universities and tax authorities. We analyse two measures of match at the university-subject (course) level, based on student academic attainment, and graduate earnings. We find that students from lower socio-economic groups systematically undermatch for both measures across the distribution of attainment, with particularly stark socio-economic gaps for the most undermatched. While there are negligible gender gaps in academic match, high-attaining women systematically undermatch in terms of expected earnings, largely driven by subject choice.

Our findings indicate that a variety of views of the public good value/contribution of higher education co-exist, which, in a context of reform, reflect various conceptions of the ways in which the principles and practices driving the French 'republican' model work or should work.

A key feature of the 21st century is undoubtedly the increased flow of people across the world. Whether chosen or forced, these displacements have nurtured new forms of interconnectedness and opened new spaces. They have also led more traditional spaces to adjust. Higher education is a case in point: it can provide an array of answers to people experiencing chosen or unchosen displacement while taking hold of the specific challenges raised by their diversity. Across different nations however, the ability of HE systems and institutions to adapt to new forms of internationalization and widening participation has proved challenging, all the more so as immigration logics and language issues also come into play. The edited book presented at this GCHE seminar explores the three intertwined thematic perspectives of access to higher education, immigration and language issues under the cross-cutting theme of inclusion. Through a variety of approaches such as policy analysis, social network analysis, ethnography or bio narratives, the chapters offer multidisciplinary insights into the various barriers and opportunities which people on the move face when they try to access higher education in different national settings across the world. My talk will provide an analytical overview of those barriers and opportunities while putting into perspective the key role that HE can play in the sustained inclusion of people on the move.

Seminar topic:
In this seminar Dr Hunt traces some historical trends in the provision of private higher and professional education, and looks at its current state and the forces that have, and continue, to shape it.

To do this he examines the historical interaction between public and private provision. He looks at the selective effect of an absence of vocational training in universities, and attempts to explain how some subject areas, such as law, accountancy and acting became specialities of private providers, and others, such as journalism and business studies, were offered by neither public or private providers, despite there being an obvious gap in the market.

Dr Hunt also looks at the role qualifying associations, gatekeepers to professional careers, had in sustaining the private sector. Additionally, he looks at incidents of integration between public and private provision, particularly in terms of correspondence education.

He concludes by providing an overview of the contemporary private higher education sector, and examines recent legislation and the role private providers are expected to play to meet government ambitions for the higher sector in general.

Course delivery via digital platforms, personalised learning with the support of artificial intelligence, real-time metrics such as learning analytics for students or business analytics for managers, and smart university campuses are only a few examples of contemporary digital initiatives in higher education.

Can private providers be expected to improve higher education inclusion, choice and quality in the
UK?

Stephen Hunt, UCL Institute of Education, University of London, United Kingdom
Vikki Boliver, University of Durham, United Kingdom

The UK government is keen to grow the private provision of higher education as a means of promoting greater choice and quality for students and of facilitating faster progress on widening access to higher education.(BIS, 2016). However, the alternative higher education sector is a largely an unknown quantity. This is principally because there has been no existing up-to-date list of private HE providers. There are few official barriers to entry to the higher education sector. The titles of University and University College, and
degree awarding powers are legally protected, and access to public funds through students' course fee loans is now closely regulated, beyond this there are no restrictions on the establishment of private providers, nor has there been any kind of register. The sector is largely unregulated and uncounted. Previous attempts to document the area have only been partially successful: a 2012 survey of alternative providers identified 674 alternative providers but achieved a 37 per cent response rate to their survey of the sector. A 2014 survey identified 732 providers and achieved a 38 per cent response rate. This left much of the sector effectively unaccounted for. (Hughes, Porter, Jones, & Sheen, 2013; Shury, Adams, Barnes, Huntley Hewitt, & Oozeerally, 2016). The Centre for Global Higher Education (CGHE) has developed a comprehensive database of alternative - specifically private - higher education providers in the UK. This CGHE database was constructed in 2017 and is a web-based census, rather than survey, of all identified private providers located in the UK, this included all 732 providers identified in the 2014 survey. For the purposes of our research private providers are defined as teaching to recognised higher education qualification - level 4 or above - but not identified on the Higher Education Funding Council's (HEFCE) or national equivalents' lists of publically funded higher education institutions, nor receiving substantial financial support from other public sources. The data base is composed of standardised quantitative data from each provider's website, covering: foundation date; location - specifically post code details; subjects & level offered; details of the highest level course offered (cost, delivery, part / full-time); external validating/ accrediting relations; external inspection e.g. QAA; and Tier 4 sponsorship. We were also able to identify all the providers identified in the 2014 research. Additional data was gathered from Companies House and the Charities Register concerning the precise legal structure associated with each provider, from which their for-profit or not for-profit status could be inferred, and their current status, whether active or having ceased to operate be identified. The findings indicate there were approximately 820 active private providers of higher education in the UK. Over sixty per cent are structured as small scale for-profit enterprises, that is, as private limited companies. The data concerning location allowed us to map the geographical distribution of private providers in the UK. (It also allowed us to compare this against the official administrative Participation of Local
Areas (POLAR) data set which maps relative levels of higher education participation throughout the UK by neighbourhood. We find that private providers are typically not well-placed to contribute to widening access. A large portion of private providers are located in England's South East, particularly London; they are underrepresented in low HE participation neighbourhoods.

Criticism of an earlier version of this presentation - over reliance on the unreliable POLAR4 data defining disadvantage - resulted in the inclusion of further administrative data sets: namely HEFCE's Higher Education hot-cold spots data; ACORN data; and, the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD). The results for the HEFCE data were consistent with the POLAR4 results: a high concentration of private providers in areas of existing high provision. Less compelling were the results of the IMD, where there was a greater concentration of private providers in more deprived areas. The conclusion is that there is an interaction between location and deprivation: less private provision in more remote & deprived areas, not deprived areas per se.
With regard to greater choice for students, our findings suggest that private providers offer a much narrower range of disciplinary specialisms than public providers. The most frequently offered subjects are business and administration, offered by 56 per cent of providers, subjects allied to medicine, offered by 20 per cent, and creative arts and design, offered by 13 per cent. The course on offer are often at sub-degree or postgraduate level: although almost 50 per cent of providers offer a level 6 qualification, only around 20 per cent of providers offer a traditional bachelor's level degree. Although many private providers are validated by a public provider or public body, and many teach courses accredited by professional bodies, only a minority have had any kind of external quality inspection. This finding is suggestive of quality issues associated with a majority of providers, and an absence of information on which students may rely on make an informed choice about enrolling with a specific provider. Moreover, referencing the providers identified in the 2014 survey, our research and records at Companies House indicate that between 2014 and 2017 23 per cent of providers had ceased to operate, of these 90 per cent were structured as for-profit institutions. A further nine per cent of providers had vanished leaving no trace. This finding indicates the relatively high level of "market exit" the private, and particularly the for-profit element of the sector, is likely to experience, leading to a greater likelihood of students in the private sector facing the adverse effects of sudden 'provider exit'. Finally, we conclude that private providers are unlikely to be the answer to the UK government's higher education ambitions. Few are currently involved in the provision of undergraduate bachelor degrees, and those that are typically offer only a restricted range of subjects. The private sector also displays a pronounced volatility, with a high proportion of market exits; expansion, particularly of the for-profit element of the private sector, would be likely to introduce a degree of instability into the UK higher education sector.

"Market exit: The implications for public and private higher education in the UK"

Stephen Hunt
Vikki Boliver

Market exit is an enduring feature of the private higher education sector, and there is evidence that it is now threatening the public sector where it has been hitherto absent. In a system now heavily reliant on tuition fee loans, uncapping student enrolment has exacerbated problems of recruitment for some providers, especially those of lower prestige or which are geographically isolated, particularly in conditions where the number of 18 year olds is currently in decline. The situation has been further destabilised by a government intent on allowing or even encouraging market exit as a means of increasing the quality and efficiency of providers in general. The research identifies the most vulnerable elements of the HE sector, and, based on data and case studies of the private HE sector, examines the consequences of market exit for students and the mechanisms in place to deal with it. Finally, it looks ahead to possible changes to the HE sector the process of market exit once established might effect, particularly in terms of an increased presence of private HE institutions replacing discontinued public providers. The presentation is specifically intended to allow or encourage questions, issues or problems for participant audience engagement.

Results and Impact CGHE iworked with Wonkhe on a one-day event to assess the impact of the Augar review on higher education and the wider post-18 education landscape featuring an interview with Philip Augar.

the day was a chance to hear from CGHE researchers, including CGHE deputy director Claire Callender and Lorraine Dearden, and Team Wonkhe's experts as well as leading voices from around further and higher education to understand the report's implications and consider the response.

We will demystify and digest all the numbers, such as the reduction in the fee cap, the repayment threshold, and assess their impact. We will digest the impact on the whole post-compulsory education system, lifelong learning, further and higher education and how they relate.

And all of this in the context of a Conservative party leadership race, an impending spending review and a demographic upswing on the horizon. Where will it take us next? We hope the conference will be part of the building blocks of the sector's response.

Hence, more findings to understand what causes the exit from academia/science are needed

Results and Impact This symposium discussed, using the lens of the "three worlds of human capital formation" (Iversen and Stevens, 2008), how different welfare state regimes affect the design of and participation in higher education and training activities, focusing on younger people's access to the labour market. Research has often focused on the increase in graduate supply and the expansion in HE, as well as on whether graduates are 'matched' in the jobs they do. However, examining the socio-political context and its interaction with higher education and training institutions can shed new light on graduates' transitions into the labour market in different countries, focusing on the UK, Italy and Australia, among others. The symposium brought together scholars and practitioners on HE, graduate employment and human capital formation across different disciplines and different institutions. My presentation examined to what extent welfare state theory is able to illuminate difference in graduate labour market trends across European countries in the 21st century.

The event was the incubator for a research network of scholars in the field of HE, graduate employment and human capital formation, which has the potential to lead to related activities and collaborations in the future.

Results and Impact The abstract of the report is as follows -
The Shannon Consortium (SC) represents a vital regional partnership between the three HEIs in the Mid-West. This partnership is at its best and most effective when addressing issues of regional importance, such as access to quality education services or supporting a strong economy supported by enterprise, innovation and skills, as emphasised in Project 2040. Experience has shown that the partnership can deliver positive impact, such as new and enhanced supports in teaching and learning; efficiencies in services; and new access routes to higher education. Yet the SC has also experienced unclear and conflicting expectations, some of its collaborative frameworks have over-reached, and not all projects have succeeded. A lasting legacy has not been established and from time to time doubts are expressed about the future of the Consortium and the cost/benefit equation for each of the participating institutions. These issues are too important to ignore and point to underlying ambiguities in the framework, unclear expectations, and weaknesses in implementation. The SC faces the choice of upgrading to a formal federation model with a broad mandate to build integrated activities, or a more limited project-specific approach with carefully negotiated agreement on a case by case basis. While varied federal structures are possible, and federation can be an end in itself, it is also ambiguous because it opens the way to possible merger. At this time there is no appetite for merger in any of the institutions, and federation is not favoured at Government level and could be a distraction from more pressing priorities. UL needs to compete within national and global higher education by enhancing its research performance; MIC wants to preserve its special character and global brand; and LIT must move towards development as a second kind of university, a Technological University, probably by merging with an IT from outside the region. The Technological University is wholly compatible with project-based regional activity but not with federation. This report argues for rebooting the Consortium along the lines of the project-centred approach, with continued coordination between the institutions to facilitate the value added by its projects, and suggests changes to governance and legal form to achieve this. The future mandate of the Shannon Consortium should be rendered less grand in theory and more effective in practice

Results and Impact A seminar presented by Vikki Boliver, University of Durham. 113 attendees.
This is seminar 4 of a 5 part series on Student Access to University convened by Simon Marginson and Jo-Anne Baird. Access to higher education is a major social issue in the UK as in most countries. Overall participation in the UK is moving towards 50 per cent of the school leaver age group but non-white students, state school students and students from disadvantaged regions of the UK are under-represented in academically elite universities. This pattern affects entry, completion and outcomes in graduate labour markets. Access to the University of Oxford is a persistent debate. Must universities choose between high standards and socially equitable admissions, or can we have both? What is the scope for change?

Results and Impact The paper builds on literature on intergroup dynamics, especially social identity theory (Tajfel, 1974; Williams & Giles, 1978) and competition theory (Blalock, 1967) to study promotion patterns and gender in academia. Underrepresentation of women professors is a global phenomenon and it has been shown this is not going to solve by itself (Acker, Webber, & Smyth, 2016; Bain & Cummings, 2000; EC, 2016; Le Feuvre, Bataille, Kradolfer, Carral, & Sautier, 2017; Lerchenmueller & Sorenson, 2018; Morley, 2014; Sagaria, 2007). Previous literature studying the issue has been mainly influenced by critical mass theory (Kanter, 1977) and focused especially at the individual level of analysis. Scholars have looked at how promotion to full professor is impacted by productivity (Marini & Meschitti, 2018; Mayer & Rathmann, 2018; Weisshaar, 2017), life domain and caring activities (Ahmad, 2017; Aiston & Jung, 2015), and social capital (van den Brink & Benschop, 2014). This paper focuses instead at the group level, and it wants to understand if the gender composition of associate and full professor ranks predicts the number of promotions available. Given this level of analysis, literature on intergroup dynamics provides a valuable background.

Results and Impact Abstract for the event: Higher education is under pressure to be more transparent and accountability for its education and research. Almost everywhere a war of words has opened-up about credential relevance, career readiness and cost vs. price. We have traditionally relied on peer-review and self-reporting, but critics (and even some of our friends) are saying this is no longer adequate. This session will examine these issues through an interactive discussion, sparked by provocations. To what extent are students and the "public" distrustful of higher education or are the media and political officials actively encouraging such distrust? Can traditional forms of academic accountability, such as quality assurance and accreditation, continue to deliver public assurance of the quality of institutional performance or are new forms of external verification required? How do we balance different perspectives?
