New, new and Rah, Rah

January 13, 2006

Opinion is divided as to whether "new, new" universities will be good for the sector (Opinion, December 23/30).


These are not "new, new" institutions with extra "new, new" students.

They have been offering degrees alongside "new and old" universities for many years - the only difference is that now these institutions are allowed to compete on a slightly more level playing field.

"Rah, Rah," I say.
