August 3, 2012

I will be talking at the Margate Photo Fest on Saturday 11 August.

Time: 2pm

Venue: Pie Factory, Margate

From September, the new funding regime for higher education will come into effect. Universities and colleges will receive large reductions in direct government grants used to cover the costs of undergraduate providing teaching. As a consequence, students face higher tuition fees and graduates who access the student loan scheme will face much higher debts.

This fundamental financial reform is the precondition for further transformations. This talk will introduce the seven varieties of privatisation under way, while also explaining how student loans place learning into a system of accounts and put a price on knowledge in unprecedented form.
