The White Paper of 1972 is — as was the Robbins Report — a watershed in British higher education. By now, most readers of Education & Training will be familiar with one of its main provisions, namely that higher education is to expand overall to a total of 750,000 students by the end of the decade, and that the universities and the public sector are each to have some 375,000 students. There is thus to be at least equality of size in respect of full‐time and sandwich undergraduate students. The polytechnics are consequently to grow faster than the universities, but the rate of expansion of the latter is not to slow down drastically.
