The Sausage Factory

Yesterday saw the publication of the latest Really Open University offering ‘The Sausage Factory’. It was a direct response to the Browne Review of UK higher education funding and offered a critical reading of the recommendations proposing a lifting of the fee cap.  The publication predicts the privatization of universities, the narrowing of participation and a ‘brain drain’ of top researchers to countries with a more hospitable HE environment.  Read The Sausage Factory here.

The Really Open University was started by a group of students and staff at the University of Leeds in opposition to the neoliberalisation of higher education. You can find out more about them here.
