I can today announce the publication of the outcome of the second phase of the review of higher education in Scotland: A Framework for Higher Education in Scotland. Higher Education Review: Phase 2 . This paper brings together the conclusions of an 18-month programme of wide-ranging consultation and discussion on the future of higher education in Scotland.

This paper sets out: a framework for the relationships between government and higher education; the Executive's priorities for teaching and learning, research and knowledge transfer, and governance and management over the next decade, and actions to be taken to address these. Its publication follows that of Life Through Learning - Learning Through Life: The Lifelong Learning Strategy for Scotland on 11 February 2003.

The Executive will work with the funding councils, higher education institutions and others with an interest in higher education to take forward this work.

Copies of the paper have been placed in the Parliament’s Reference Centre.
