MEG responds to developments in College Based Higher Education (CBHE) by responding to consultations but also undertakes and commissions selective research for the benefit of members and the wider CBHE community . We also publish articles designed to stimulate discussion and raise awareness of CBHE matters. This section of the website includes:
● a selection of our Consultation responses;
● examples of documents drafted by MEG, sometimes jointly with other agencies, and;
● a selection of research publications including an overview of CBHE, Scholarly Activity,
Progression to HE, leadership in HE in FE, higher level Apprenticeships etc
Individual MEG member colleges have an active interest in research and scholarly activity and many hold annual HE in FE research conferences in partnership with their local universities. Examples of work completed in-house by HE teaching staff will be posted on this part of the site.
MEG members contribute significantly to the research that is undertaken about College based HE. As a group we have been funded to write a number of papers or research documents and these can be found in this part of the website. For ease of access, we have grouped the papers into broad headings.
This paper reports the findings of a survey carried out in 2017-18 into the views of
International students who are studying for HE qualifications in a publically-funded college
rather than a university setting. 2019
The multi-college project at New College Durham, Sunderland College and Darlington College has put in place HE Academic Support Tutors to provide a positive study skills support experience that enhances student learning, boosts engagement with course content, and raises students’ confidence and resilience. 2019
