Universities must address vice-chancellors’ pay, MPs warn

Universities and the Office for Students should make it a priority to tackle excessive pay among vice-chancellors, MPs have said.

In a report published on 5 November by the House of Commons education committee, MPs urge universities to combat “unjustifiably” excessive salaries of vice-chancellors and senior managers, which “have become the norm rather than the exception and do not represent value for money for students or the taxpayer”.

The committee launched its inquiry into value for money in higher education in September 2017. MPs say in the report that all institutions should offer degree apprenticeships, which are “crucial” to solving the country’s productivity challenge.
