Professor Eric Thomas, President of Universities of UK has recently responded to the report of the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) on the impact of funding changes in England from 2012.

The report shows 40% decrease in the enrolments of part-time undergraduates since 2010 - despite of the extension of loans to part-time students.

Thomas said: "Part-time study in the UK has a very important role to play in meeting the needs of students, particularly mature students, and the UK's skills agenda. It must also contribute towards improving social mobility."

He believes this to be concerning and has asked the Minister for Universities and Science, David Willets, to review the issue and make urgent practical recommendations.
