The British government wants 20 new campuses in the UK

The Guardian reports that John Denham, the universities secretary, “is calling on towns and cities to bid for university campuses or higher education centres – 20 in total, over the next six years – to improve access to HE in places where it is in short supply.” 

This is to attract groups of people with A-levels, but no experience with higher education. This reserve is calculated to several million prospective students who would consider higher education if it were conveniently located. The initiative could also help regenerate rundown areas of Britain.
