The Conversation – Plug the university finance gap by turning teaching greener

As students take to the streets calling for free higher education, a spotlight is being shone again on the sustainability of England’s higher education system. While much of the debate centres around financial sustainability if universities did more to become environmentally sustainable they could also reduce costs.

Building on the findings from the SusTEACH project and analysis of the student loans system Sally Caird has published an article in ‘The Conversation’ that contributes to the debate about the financial sustainability of England’s Higher Education System, following the recent well-publicised report by the Higher Education Committee.
