The Higher Education Governance (Scotland) Bill was passed, not without some controversy, by the Scottish Parliament last week: see here (pdf). The Bill contains, amongst other things, provisions about the composition of, and appointments to, the governing bodies of higher education institutions. A copy of the Bill as passed is available here (pdf). In the course of debate at third stage, it was noted that a review of the Scottish Code of Good Higher Education Governance will take place later this year.
