RCUK policy and guidance on open access

Our response expresses concern that there is insufficient evidence that promoting Gold OA will meet sustainability, access and excellence criteria.

Inquiry on the future of higher education

Our response highlights the employability of geography graduates, and the relevance of geographical skills in industry. We also call for better access to quality information on courses and careers, and funding support for teaching and research.

GCSE reform consultation (Ofqual)

In response to the Ofqual consultation, we argue for the continuation of the Ebac, and recommend more opportunities for extended writing, maths and statistics work in GCSE geography. We also express concern over lower grades generally awarded to early entry students in 2013.

Knowledge Exchange Framework Consultation

We argue for a broader understanding and subsequent assessment of knowledge exchange and collaboration. We also call for more attention to relative opportunities when determining clustering.
