Higher education is facing change across the world, but nowhere more so than in the UK with the impact of changing funding structures, a changing student body and diminishing resources. It is not just the Browne Review though that heralds these changes, UK HE has already been subject to new circumstances over the past ten or more years but it has not always responded as a sector with agility and speed. What is clear, though, now is that we need to radically rethink our current models and consider what the University of the future should look like. This paper will outline the key note lecture I presented which considers the changes that HE has faced over the past fifteen years, describes some of the challenges we are facing now and looks to some models of the future in response to those current challenges. It includes feedback provided by hose present at the lecture in terms of their views for the past, present and future.
