    I don't think there will be new universities built in the future. If there are new universities built, will they be still classified as ex polytechnics?

    They probably will be a new classiciation for them. Didn't you say they were thinking of building one in Cumrbia?

    The problem is at the moment there simply isn't a need for any new universities, they will be new universities created as a result of mergers but no brand new ones. However I think the HE sector will become a lot meaner and tougher and some universities may go under.

    O yeah, I said that they were building a uni in Cumbria. I think that is all the uni's in that area combined into one uni. Not sure though. If that is the case, it's still a ex-poly though.

    Well no, if new ones were built they wouldn't have ever been polytechics, hence they can't be ex polys.

    They sometimes change colleges into universities, like University College Suffolk, instead of Suffolk College like it used to be.

    The current term for those universities created in or since 1992 is Post-92s (if you are from a pre-92) or Modern Universities (if you are not).

    It is very rare for anyone to refer to ex-polys - after all the change happened 13 years ago.
