From today’s (23rd Sept) FT:

“Richard Lambert, director-general of the CBI and chancellor of Warwick University, said in June that the government should take the “politically explosive but probably economically sensible decision to close or merge the worst-run institutions” if necessary.

Closing down universities is not straightforward, however. For example, many financially weak institutions have excelled at recruiting students from social groups that older universities have struggled to attract.

London Metropolitan University is recovering from financial problems that led it at one point last year to be classified as “at risk” by government officials. Yet it accepted 6,115 black students in 2007-08 – almost as many as the 7,815 black students accepted in total by all 20 research-led Russell Group universities.”
