Letter: Part-timer challenge

June 15, 2001

Your open letter to ministers (Leader, THES , June 8) neatly summarised the most urgent challenges facing higher education. New Labour has set ambitious targets for high-quality growth. So far it has tried to do this on the cheap. I would press another claim: to attract and retain those who are excluded, ministers must provide more generous but targeted financial support for part-time students.
