Baroness Randerson comment on University of Wales QAA report

June 22, 2011 4:16 PM

Jenny Randerson portraitResponding to the damning assessment of the University of Wales' overseas operations, Welsh Liberal Democrat Peer and former shadow Education Minister, Jenny Randerson, said:

"The quality and brand of University of Wales has been at stake for a long time and this damning report has confirmed what we hoped it wouldn't.

"I fully agree with the Education Minister that the University of Wales has brought the higher education sector in Wales into disrepute.

"When I was shadow Education Minister, I raised concerns with him about the international reputation of Wales' academic stature and the possible devaluing of the University of Wales' degrees. This issue is immensely important to our economy, to the reputation of higher education in Wales and to the reputation of Wales abroad.

"Steps must now be taken to restore the reputation of the University of Wales, not only here in Wales, but across the world."
