This week on the podcast we discuss Gavin Williamson’s proposals on campus free speech and ask “why now” and whether they’ll work.
We also review the latest applications data and look at an interesting new report on universities and the media.
With Hillary Gyebi-Ababio, Vice President Higher Education at NUS, Richard Brabner, Director of the UPP Foundation, Jim Dickinson, Associate Editor and presented by Mark Leach, CEO at Wonkhe.
Items this week
- Government free speech proposals represent a breakdown of trust and confidence.
- This is not the first government crack down on free speech in universities.
- Medical related subjects up, mature students up, EU applications low – David Kernohan introduces the UCAS January deadline data for 2021.
- Though application numbers are strong at the January deadline, there’s a lot of the cycle left to navigate. Sandel Kristel thinks through what the rest of this year might look like for applicants.

One response to “PODCAST: Free speech, applications, the media”
Total respect for hillary. Thoughtful, measured and constructive! Not that the rest of you aren’t. But we have to sing it for students and how they organise.
