UK universities likely to follow US model, says leading vice-chancellor
"British universities are likely to become far more similar to their American counterparts, a leading vice-chancellor predicted yesterday, with some institutions focusing solely on teaching rather than research.
"As Lord Browne prepares to unveil his blueprint for universities, Professor Sir Keith O'Nions, rector of Imperial College London, urged the government to lift the cap on tuition fees, describing this as "the most forward-looking option".
"Next week Lord Browne, the former chief executive of BP, is expected to publish a review recommending that fees - currently capped at £3,290 a year - should be at least doubled. Shortly after the review is published the government will announce its comprehensive spending review, which will remove billions of pounds of Whitehall money from university coffers."
