Non disclosures, access, pro-life, a levels

On the last podcast before our Easter break, we discuss the rise of non-disclosure agreements for university staff, the state of the Office for Students’ access and participation data, the refusal of affiliation for an anti-abortion group in Aberdeen, and students with low prior attainment doing well at university.

With Shan Wareing, Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Vice Chancellor (Education) at London South Bank University; Thom Brookes, Professor of Law and Government at Durham University; and Wonkhe’s David Kernohan.

Items this week:

  • BBC investigation on university non-disclosure agreements
  • Wonkhe articles (news, data) on OfS access and participation data.
  • Times story on the refusal to affiliate a anti-abortion society
  • Times story on students with lower A level grades going on to get a first class degree.

For our correlation quiz we asked – does the number of students studying languages at an English HE provider in 2017-18 correlate with the number of students studying historical or philosophical subjects?

Yes, but does it correlate?
