Colin McCaig’s views on the funding of Higher Education where sought by Public Finance as part of the ongoing public debate around fees.  ‘Universities unbound: where will campuses without caps end up?’, was the cover story in by Public Finance on 25th November 2015.  Speaking about the wider impact of the new Higher Education Green Paper reforms, Colin noted that “The new regulatory framework will make it easier both for new providers to get degree-awarding powers and for existing providers to fail as businesses…” and that this will  “create more competition and eventually lower average fee levels at the margins of the system.”
