Win-win way to square the funding circle 3

July 2, 2009

Your leading article proclaims that universities "have been doing much more for much less" ("Unite to fight the betrayal", 25 July). Pardon? Have they not seen major increases in undergraduate tuition fees over the past three years? Even without increasing full-time undergraduate numbers, a university enrolling a modest 3,000 students a year has received an extra £35 million for no extra work. Perhaps we should ask where the extra cash has gone.
