Study UK response to David Willetts resignation

15 July 2014

Study UK has responded to the news that David Willetts MP has resigned as Minister of State for Universities and Science, to be replaced by Greg Clark MP as part of a cabinet reshuffle today.

Alex Proudfoot, Study UK Association Manager, said: "David Willetts brought real vision and energy to the HE sector, backed up by ambitious reforms which have left UK Higher Education on a stronger footing for the future. He applied his deep understanding and consideration to the challenges facing the sector and provided invaluable support on many issues to both traditional universities and new providers alike. We wish him well in his future plans.

"There are however many issues left to resolve in order to ensure equal treatment for all providers leading to a sustainable, competitive and efficient sector for the future. In this regard we look forward to working with the new universities and science minister Greg Clark on creating a modern HE sector which meets the needs of students and the country alike and which further strengthens our position internationally."
