David Willetts talks to Owen Sheers

A University Education

Hay Festival 2018, 

Drawing on his experience as UK Minister for Universities and Science from 2010 to 2014, Willetts offers a powerful account of the value of higher education and the case for more expansion. He discusses access for disadvantaged students, tuition fees, the potential for business and universities to work together in promoting innovation, and envisions how globalisation and technological progress may change the university significantly.   He talks to Owen Sheers, Professor in Creativity at Swansea University.
