Sarah Ebner- Times-School Gate  Q/A Forum-13 Sept 2012
Question-to HE Minister David Willetts -From patrick watson

One of my children is at university the other just left-Russell Group-both appreciate social benefits but both disappointed by lack of personal contact/feedback from Tutors/ Markers and time spent in seminars and face to face exchanges. Much worse than when I was at UNI-what can be done to improve this contact time?

David Willetts:

I agree with you. You have put your finger on the key challenge. That is why speaking to university vice chancellors today I emphasised that our reforms should get them to focus on teaching quality. I do not believe in giving instructions to universities but we can get them to publish information on it which prospective students can act on.
