Central to the governance of the English model of higher education is how the HEIs respond to the state-regulated market. This chapter examines the responses of six institutions to four central policies. The institutions are: University College London; London Metropolitan University; the Universities of Manchester, Southampton, Warwick, and the West of England. The policies are: fee setting, patterns of student recruitment, the research agenda, and evaluating quality control. There is an examination of the changes in the rules governing the regulated market in each policy area and how the six institutions have adjusted to those changes. While responding to the state-regulated market is clearly demanding in terms of time and financial resources, the chapter concludes that it is a process that these institutions have successfully negotiated. Although there is pressure for ‘lighter touch’ regulatory regimes, the conclusion is that the regulatory state, while changing over time, will persist.

Keywords:   regulatory change, fee setting, widening participation, research missions, quality assurance, institutional strategies, conflict, control, bureaucracy
