UUK plans consultation on admissions system

August 30, 2002

A new consultation on a post-qualification admissions system is being planned by Universities UK in response to the Local Government Authority's call earlier this month for the school year to be reformed into six terms.

UUK will decide whether to launch the consultation at its annual meeting in Aberystwyth on September 11-12.
