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 roblems 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.

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.

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.

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?

Eileen Kennedy, 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.

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.

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.

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.

Universities operate in the global education industry, which consists of diverse, multiple and variegated markets. It is not only characterised by the 'laws of the market', but is also infused by the promise of technology. 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. It is not exaggerating to say that universities are undergoing fundamental transformation with digitalising all of their operations. They collaborate with various private companies to collect and process data, build digital infrastructure, and create digital solutions.

The Scottish Government has set an ambitious target that by 2030 20 per cent of entrants to higher education should come from the 20 per cent most deprived communities across Scotland. Interim targets of 16 per cent in 2021 and 18 per cent by 2026. Progress has been rapid with the 2021 target already met. But difficult issues remain - big differences between individual universities and between colleges and universities, reluctance to offer Higher National students full credit on degree programmes and (potentially) over-timid use of contextual admissions. The seminar will examine these issues as well as wider issues and dilemmas that confront all HE systems in their effort to widen access.

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.

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

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.

Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact The Government has placed a great deal of faith in the competitive effects of private and particularly for-profit higher education (HE) providers addressing the apparent deficiencies of the public higher education system: substandard teaching, poor outcomes, a lack of flexible provision, and a failure to effectively widen participation.
In this presentation I examine the current composition of the private higher education sector and attempt to assess how close it is to realising the government's ambitions. I address this by examining the prevalence of private providers, the subjects taught, and the educational level at which they are offered.
In assessing the likelihood of the private sector issues of widening participation I consider the composition of the student body at private providers, and their comparative outcomes. I also look at the geographical distribution of private providers.
The evidence does not indicate the private sector is positioned to stand as any effective source of competition for standard undergraduate education, neither in scale of existing provision, nor scope of subjects taught, while the sector's contribution to widening participation is likely to be constrained by its geographical concentration in London and the South East.

The ensuing debate considered the success of government initiatives to expand the private HE sector; the reasons behind the revision of HE oversight, and the interface between public and private HE especially concerning non-traditional students.

Results and Impact Summary of the keynote speech -
Higher education carries out a broad range of social and economic functions. It forms people, or rather it helps people to form themselves. It helps to build relational human society. It provides conditions for economic activity; not just by graduating people with diverse occupational skills and qualifications but also people with social capital, information and expertise. It also produces, organizes, disseminates and reproduces formal knowledge. It fosters criticism and civil discussion and at certain times in history this role has been very important. It also furthers global cooperation. These functions take the form of both individualized and collective outputs or 'goods', and are expressed at local, national and global levels. All else being equal, in large scale high participation systems of higher education, as in Russia today, these many 'goods' contributed by higher education ought to be greatly enhanced. But a crucial issue is how the contributions of higher education are valued or ordered. Measurement, legitimacy and hierarchy all enter the contributions equation. Arguably, and despite the fact that higher education in Russia has tremendous potential, the system of valuation diminishes rather than enhances the socially recognizable contributions of higher education in Russia today.

Results and Impact What is the international or global space in higher education and how do we understand it? Scholar-researchers apply a range of disciplinary lenses and methods. Geography plays a key role in many but not all studies of student mobility or global science. Others analyse these dynamics through an economic or policy studies or linguistic frame. Some are hunting for an elusive universal perspective, others are very mindful of national or cultural differences. Some are especially attentive to the challenges facing education in emerging countries. Some look for signs of their own country everywhere they look, others are fascinated by what they see as foreign exotica, others are post-colonial. Many who research 'internationalisation' as student mobility and other cross-border connections, or work on 'global competences', don't necessarily research comparative education in a rigorous manner, or take account of the literature on development education. The interesting and productive differences between an 'international', 'comparative' and a 'global' perspective are rarely discussed.

These differences shape the contents and impacts of higher education research and scholarship. The contrary knowledge produced in this field shapes our global imagining in fragmented ways - is the diversity always fruitful? Should we work to develop a common view? This series will explore six different approaches to imagining and investigating international higher education, highlighting similarities and differences between them, and drawing the participant audience into active discussion.

The CGHE Seminar series on international and global higher education concluded on this day with a panel discussion with all six speakers from the previous three seminars: Rachel Brooks, Maia Chankseliani, Ariane de Gayardon, Simon Marginson, Tristan McCowan and David Mills. The chair is Alis Oancea from the University of Oxford.

Results and Impact The long-awaited review into post-18 education and funding, the Augar Report, was released in May 2019 and ignited debates across higher and further education. In this event, members of the CGHE research team analysed the strengths and weaknesses of the Augar report and discussed the future of HE and FE across the country, including relations between them, and the systems of tuition and student support. The discussion included the cost of Augar, its impact on governance, its influence on different academic fields, and specialised insights from the further education sector. After the presentations there was considerable audience Q&A with the panel.

Results and Impact The paper argued as follows -
What is the global in higher education and how does it relate to the national domain where institutions and persons are primarily funded and ordered? To grasp this we need to set aside some common assumptions. First, the global and the international are not identities, or 'dimensions' integrated into the 'purpose, functions or delivery' of education in one university or nation. They can only exist as relationships. Second, global relations are understood in terms of connectedness - people, institutions and ideas crossing borders - but while connections are certainly part of the picture, to define the global in this manner leaves us stuck at the rim of the 'national container'. We need a way of imagining the global in higher education that brings it into open view, enhances its potential value and interrogates relations of power within it (relationships are not always symmetrical), even while national and local phenomena can also freely appear. The paper finds that the global is most usefully understood in terms of relational systems at the world and world-regional level, and globalisation as the process of integration on this scale. Just as national higher education is a process of nation-state building, globalisation in higher education and science is a process of world-building. Global systems are partial and uneven, but higher education - especially its knowledge-intensive components - is among the most global of all human activities and constitutes a form of global civil society.
The discussion that followed was vigorous and intelligent.

Results and Impact This presentation of original work from CGHE research project 1.1. The paper compared Sinic and Anglo-American approaches to the role of higher education in generating public and common goods. It paralleled the two higher education systems in the light of their political and educational cultures and their approaches to collectivism and individualism. It outlined how the state in China is and always has been a comprehensive state, in contrast to the Anglo-American limited liberal state. In the Anglo-American countries economic policy has constructed a limited role for public goods so as to maximise the scope for the market economy. There is a growing emphasis on higher education as a private good. Despite this, Anglo-American countries also practice a broader notion of 'public' based on communications and democratic inclusion in civil society and higher education as part of the civil order. Compared to the English-speaking countries, China's political culture embodies larger potentials for collective ties, shared goods and state intervention in higher education, and a lesser role for higher education in fostering civil society. There is a growing emphasis on the individual in Chinese culture, and Western influences in higher education are obvious. Chinese higher education is more influenced by Anglo-American ideas than vice versa. Many Chinese academics and students are bilingual. Historically, China has always had the capacity to take in foreign ideas and make them part of the mix. The paper found that nevertheless, Anglo-American and Sinic political cultures continue to contrast greatly and this impacts the wider conversations and debates which inform the social nature and role of higher education. Though the two sets of higher education institutions have much in common, especially in the sciences, there are also deep underlying differences. Yet they share a common space in worldwide higher education. The discussion that followed the paper was insightful and stimulating for all present.

Results and Impact The paper reviewed the rapid development of higher education and science in China in the last forty years. It discussed the conditions and strategies of that development, including the ways that it embodies a distinctive Chinese approach to higher education. In particular, the paper reflected on the policies whereby China coordinated with globalization in higher education and science after 1978, in building national capacity and global influence. Scale, nation-state policy goals and accelerated investment on their own are necessary but not sufficient (otherwise Saudi Arabia's research universities would be stronger than they are). The effective national/global synergy developed by China, made possible by the international openness and part-devolution to science communities that was implemented in the Deng Xiaoping era, has been crucial in the rapid rise of China's universities and science. This national/global synergy-and its potentials, tensions and limits-in turn has determined the nature of the achievement and will shape its future evolution.

Results and Impact A seminar presented by a panel of Heads of College at University of Oxford. 120 attendees.
This is seminar 5 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 Overcoming a massive teacher shortage and lack of teacher capacity around the world is a key challenge if we are to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4) - ensure inclusive and quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030. UNESCO estimates that 68.8 million teachers need to be recruited and trained in developing countries. However, current approaches to teacher professional development (TPD) often suffer from poor quality and high costs, particularly when trying to deliver training at large scale. New approaches are required to enable the delivery of large-scale, cost-effective, continuous professional development programs for teachers.

Results and Impact Paul Ashwin was quoted in an article in THE on 1st February 2019 - Two-thirds of students think TEF based on Ofsted-style inspection

"Paul Ashwin, professor of higher education at Lancaster University, said the fact that most applicants who had heard about the TEF had learned about it from institutions suggested that it was "mainly used by institutions as a way of marketing their provision".

"As a whole, the evaluation paints a picture of the TEF as having very little to do with teaching quality or excellence," he said. "Instead, it is about institutions managing the TEF process to maximise their TEF outcome and then, providing they do not get bronze, using this as a way of marketing their provision to prospective students who generally are not aware of what the award means.""

Results and Impact Date: 20 November 2019
Time: 12:15-4:00 pm
Location: Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge with Morag Henderson, Nikki Shure and Anna Adamecz-Volgyi
This is the first in a series of events which will present rigorous evidence on different aspects of Universities' efforts to widen participation and their activities to support learners from more disadvantaged backgrounds whilst in university. The events will provide a forum for discussion of how such evidence might be used in practice. The aim of the series is to enable academics and practitioners to come together to discuss what constitutes effective practice and how the sector might go about evaluating their own practice. The first workshop will focus on the challenge of identifying disadvantaged students.
Is 'first in family' a good indicator for widening university participation?: Anna Adamecz-Völgyi, Morag Henderson and Nikki Shure
Currently, a range of universities use 'first in family' or 'first generation' as an indicator to increase the diversity of their student intake, but very little is known about whether this is a good indicator of disadvantage and how it overlaps with other widely used indicators. We use nationally representative, longitudinal survey data linked to administrative education data from England to provide the first comprehensive analysis of the first in family measure. We show how first in family correlates with other commonly used measures of disadvantage and find that it captures additional disadvantage over and above other measures. We employ parametric probability and non-parametric classification models to look at its relative predictive power to predict university participation and graduation. We find that being first in family is an important barrier to university participation and graduation, even after controlling for other sources of disadvantage. This seems to work through the channel of early educational attainment. Our research provides evidence that the first in family indicator could be key in efforts to widen participation at universities through the use of contextualised admissions.
