The university can be broadly classified in to four types: the ancient universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the ‘redbrick’ or civic universities of the 19th Century, a third group of universities founded after the 2nd World War and the ‘new universities in the 1990’s. (Oakland, 2006, p.223) There are many reasons for the rapid expansion in the number of students, changes in the society and economy, contributed to the growth of British education. Which factors have led to British higher education changes are much more valuable to be investigated. The open mass education is a worldwide phenomenon.
