IRU group wants intrusive industry associations to but-out

The Innovative Research Universities backs the government plan to stop industry associations sticking their bibs into university teaching via professional accreditation requirements. “At the very least, this has led to a duplication of effort and additional costs. In the worse cases, it involved conflicts of interest, illegitimate restrictions for entry into professions, and undermined the freedom of universities to design curriculum and implement innovative approaches to teaching. Limiting the role of professional accreditation to clearly defined and profession-specific matters is, therefore, appropriate, “ the IRU announces.
