Abstract

The increasing transition of higher education is changing due to demands placed by funding bodies and students. In addition to these demands there is an increase in the UK, for the period 2004–2005 and 2012–2013, the number of students studying in HE increased by 2.8%, from 2.2 million to 2.3 million. These changes are implicit with higher education and the system itself. A higher education university has many purposes; from the many, it can be narrowed to four key strands, these strands are very complex and there have been many interpretations about what the institution is designed to achieve. Thus, the impact it may have on a university in terms of league tables, research, teaching and learning, to name a few.
