Policies & Research

MEG contributes to both of these areas nationally by responding to public consultations, producing Think pieces and undertaking research. In this section of the web you will find details of past consultation responses, some documents written with other organisations which also have an interest in HE in FE matters, and a number of research papers.

As our website develops, we hope to publish college-led research on this part of the site. Many member institutions are undertaking research into various aspects of the student and the tutor experience of HE in FE and we look forward to sharing these in the near future.
