Abstract:

This article argues that recent government interventions in higher education–some based in consumer law and others in the form of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) have failed to put prospective students in a position to make informed choices about courses or universities. Consumer law-based interventions do not give students all the information they need, although they may help to improve the standard of information and to control marketing excess. The TEF, with its focus on outputs rather than inputs, similarly misses the mark. These failures are bad for students and, to the extent that higher education is a market which depends on students making informed choices, bad for higher education.
