  New Universities - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
New University may refer to any of the several universities founded in the 1960s following the Robbins Report on higher education, often called plate glass universities.
The term has more recently been used to describe any of the former polytechnics or colleges of higher education that were given the status of universities by John Major's government in 1992, or colleges that have been granted university status since then, also called post-1992 universities or Modern Universities.
These universities award academic degrees having received university status when the Further and Higher Education Act, 1992 came into effect or shortly thereafter.
