Reshaping the University

The Rise of the Regulated Market in Higher Education

David Palfreyman and Ted Tapper

  • Analyses the shift from overwhelmingly publicly-funded system of higher education to one which is increasingly privately-funded
  • Incorporates a number of explanations for this shift, including historical dimension, ideological underpinnings, political factors, and economic imperative
  • Focuses on the role of the state-regulated market as the mechanism that links government policy, the development of the system of higher education, and institutional behaviour.
  • Includes a strong comparative dimension with tertiary education in the US and EU
