The podcast is back for its autumn season, and we’re chatting all the gossip and speeches from Universities UK’s annual conference in Birmingham. There’s also news on international students, a new unistats from OfS, and the return of Hidden History.
With Wonkhe’s own Jim Dickinson (Associate Editor), Debbie McVitty (Editor) and Mark Leach (CEO)
This week’s items:
- Debbie McVitty guides you through the ministerial speeches to the annual Universities UK conference
- The sector has been very positive about the announcement of a new post-study work visa route – but David Kernohan still wants to see some details.
- David Kernohan reviews the new Discover Uni site
And here’s this weeks correlation – Because it’s all Wonkhe staff on the podcast this week I thought we’d get technical. OfS releases a measure of how well paid a head of provider is compared to the rest of their staff as a ratio. What I’m asking is whether there is a link between this and how quickly the provider would run out of money if if stopped getting any – the number of days of net liquidity.
So – do providers that could go under in the blink of an eye pay their VCs and principals loads more than the rest of the staff? Does it correlate?
