ESRC-NRF Higher Education grant award

Prof Neil Morris, Dr Carlo Perrotta and Dr Bronwen Swinnerton have been awarded £494,028 from the ESRC for a joint project with an NRF-funded team from the University of Cape Town, South Africa, led by Dr Laura Czerniewicz.

The project, with a 26-month duration from October 2016 to November 2018, ‘Unbundling education: Mapping the changing nature of Higher Education in South Africa’ will examine the ways in which higher education systems are being re-organised in an increasingly global education market place, mainly by disaggregating (unbundling) curricula and using digital technologies strategically to distribute provision across several individual more cost-effective components.
