Are fees the fairest way to fund universities? With research funding for Scottish universities cut by millions earlier this year, where should universities get their money from? If public funding is not an appropriate source, should universities be privatised?

This lunchtime session questions the way universities should be financed, and their role in a ‘good society’.
