Staff wellbeing, degree classification, student health

This week we discuss the Higher Education Policy Institute’s report on staff mental health and the University of Oxford’s programme to widen access to the institution. There is a statement of intent on degree classifications, and the question of how responsible universities should be for freshers’ weight gain.

With Justine Andrew of KPMG; Amatey Doku of the National Union of Students; and Wonkhe’s Mark Leach.


With concerns being raised about unconditional offers again we wondered about the practice of admitting students to degree courses from sub-degree HE courses. Would providers offering large numbers of sub-degree courses make large numbers of offers with an unconditional component? Does it correlate?
