Widening participation in Higher Education

Speakers:
Gareth Thomas MP, Shadow Minister of State for Universities and Skills Nicola Dandridge, Chief Executive, Universities UK Liam Burns, President, NUS Jeevan Vasagar, Education Editor, The Guardian
Chair: Ryan Shorthouse, Researcher, Social Market Foundation
Participation in higher education has risen dramatically in recent years, especially among more disadvantaged young people. But the proportion of more deprived young people in the most prestigious universities has fallen over the past decade. Some are concerned that tripling the maximum tuition fee will deter these students further; while others argue that the real problem is the persistent education attainment gap. Where should government deploy its resources and power to improve social mobility into our elite universities?Speakers:
