A look ahead to the week for UK higher education plus all that's new on Wonkhe        

The higher education week ahead

What did you do in the quality wars?

You might have missed on Wonkhe

Odds and sods elsewhere

The Scotsman says that 'new ideas are needed on university access'. Some parts of the ring-wing press seem intent on ramping up fears about international students and there have been a host of stories over the past few days from every angle - loans and finance, standards, culture and integration, behaviour and practices. I'm choosing not to link to them (partly because there's so many and party because they're so awful) but the timing is certainly interesting, with the ongoing battle at the heart of government about student immigration as hot as it has ever been.
