Plateglass and Diamond
Wednesday, July 10, 2019
Are we featuring jewellers or glaziers in this issue? No!
Many people know of the expression “Red-brick universities”, but did you know there are "Plateglass universities" too? At the time of year when many "A" level students await results to see if they can get into the Higher Education (HE) institution of their choice, (whether Red-brick, Plateglass or any other kind!), we look at the challenges which face the HE sector around capturing student data, reporting on graduate outcomes and widening participation to groups less likely to matriculate. At around the same time as Plateglass Universities were established, the postcode as we now know it also had its birth, so in this issue, we celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of the Postcode – Happy 60th Birthday Postcodes!
