Summary

Based on the assumption that Britain is moving toward mass higher education while the U.S. is on the verge of universal access, the three papers in this volume summarize prospective changes in some of the major characteristics of students in the two countries. Forms of British expansion are discussed. One of these is the new 2-year Dipolma of Higher Education that, according to the government's recent White House paper on education, may be designed as a terminal qualification in its own right, or as a basis for subsequent education for teaching and other professions or for degree courses in polytechnics and universities. The Dipolma, it is pointed out, may serve to diversify educational opportunities and introduce greater flexibility in the pattern of higher education; on the contrary, if it is standardized, it may fasten a new rigidity on the system. The final paper points out deficiencies in the planning and coordination of the University and polytechnic sectors, emphasizes the necessity for designing the whole of higher education, and outlines the need to articulate the parts of a comprehensive and diversified system if the British are to plan "the accommodation of future numbers of students, the future balance of work between the sectors, the future types of course and the future academic communities, entirely free from the suppositions of the past."
