Policy passed at the Ordinary General Meeting on 2003-06-07
NPC opposes the removal of research in institutions where it will not benefit the choice of postgraduates and the opportunities available. Access to research in a number of cases is essential in both taught and research degree programmes at postgraduate level. Knowledge transfer intensive institutions will potentially reduce, or even remove the intake of postgraduate students. Transition from a teaching intensive institution to a research-intensive institution for a prospective postgraduate could be difficult.
