Welsh are no worse 2

February 4, 2005

The real issue is not the failure of the University of Wales's authorities to respond to the recommendations in audit reports, but the fact that, because of the division of labour that exists, students think they are getting a University of Wales degree, when for all practical purposes the degrees they are getting are from those of the constituent institutions. It is a consumer information problem.

The solution is equally obvious. Once an institution has attained its own degree-awarding powers, it should be required to use them.
