Higher Education Policy Institute/Times Higher Education Scottish independence essay-writing competition

26th May 2014

Scottish Independence and higher education

Writers with strong opinions on what Scottish independence might mean for higher education are invited to enter the Higher Education Policy Institute/Times Higher Education Scottish independence essay-writing competition. The best pro- and anti-independence pieces will each win a £500 prize, and both essays will be published by THE. Nick Hillman, director of Hepi, said the competition was an opportunity for “students, academics and just interested watchers – from both sides of the border – to express their views”.

Entries must take a clear position for or against independence, and Mr Hillman said the competition was seeking essays “that may inject thoughts that have not been at the heart of the independence debate so far”. They do not necessarily need to cover all the consequences of independence for higher education, he added, and could focus on a single, original angle.

Entries should be submitted by 3 July 2014 to [email protected] , and should be no longer than 1,500 words.

Anyone may enter from any country and of any age.
