A new wing of the Conservative Party is running the government, and universities are rarely out of the news. Giles Carden and Jonathan Woodhead ask if universities need to change course to keep up.

Jonathan has experience of the world of politics and higher education having worked as a Political Assistant to Mark Prisk MP, the former Business Minister and latterly as a Policy Adviser to The Rt. Hon. David Willetts MP, now Lord Willetts of Havant. He was also the Senior Public Affairs Officer at Universities UK and a former Executive Officer to a London based Vice-Chancellor.
He holds a BA in International Relations and an MA in War Studies from King’s College, London.
