Manifestos for the General Election 2015 – Higher Education Policies

Ahead of the General Election 2015, Universities Wales has summarised the higher education policies for Wales in the main parties’ manifestos. (Note: At time of writing, Welsh Conservative and UKIP Wales manifestos were yet to be published online, therefore their entries are based on their UK manifestos).

A UK-wide briefing from Universities UK can be found here. This includes a thematic summary of the policy commitments which could impact upon universities made by political parties in manifestos and other documents prior to the 2015 General Election, with some commentary on implications of cross-party deals which may be required in the event of a hung parliament. (Note: At the point of writing, the Scottish National Party was the only major party yet to publish a manifesto).
