Interview with Real Media – parts 1, 2 & 3

January 30, 2017

Earlier in January, I saw down with Real Media for a couple of hours to talk about higher education reform and student loans.

Real Media have now released their first edited video. It’s ten minutes long and from somewhere in the middle of that two hours. I’m not sure how much more they are planning to release at this stage but I’ll put updates here.

The discussion in this segment focuses on how English HE is moving towards a funding system based on creditworthiness (of individuals and institutions). More detail on my theory of ‘financialisation’ can be found in the final chapters of The Great University Gamble.

Update – 6 Feb 2017

Part 2 of the interview is now available. This 10-min segment covers debt: student loan & commercial debt and why comparisons with the US are mostly misleading.

Part 3 of the interview – which appeared on 7 Feb – concentrated on why the government is trying to sell student loans and how to value student loans – including an explanation of the difference between face and fair value.
