Sorana Vieru asks whether TEF could have a negative influence on student retention, in spite (or because) of it’s inclusion as a core metric in TEF.
I have a confession to make. During my days at Russell Group institutions I favoured the research concentration tendency; that is, the view that it would be better if fewer universities were funded by central government to undertake research. I now understand that I was wrong. There, I’ve said it. And I’m sorry.
