Power is moving away from traditional university services and selective university admissions officers into the hands of educational consumers, who will soon have their choice of attending universities across the world online whilst they’re on public transport. If top universities around the world are slow to evolve, smaller and more flexible players are likely to emerge from the pack and gain a greater share of mind and market.
The changes ahead will ultimately bring about the most beneficial, efficient and equitable access to education the world has ever seen. Greater advances in technology will offer future students an array of new choices for how they build and customise their education. Bespoke degrees will emerge and students will be able to put them together according to what they need.
