Abstract (Englisch): The author summarizes the main traits of the policy of unification in the English and Welsh sector of higher education. He asks for the benefit the former polytechnics could derive from this process. In the former so-called binary system the polytechnics had cultivated their strength to attract target groups who usually were reserved to enrol into university programs. Yet within the unified university sector which emerged by granting the polytechnics the status of universities this strength has been devaluated. Together with the unification of the sector new methods of financing and quality assessment have been established which favour the traditional universities and enclose the former polytechnics in the lower half of the nation-wide ranking list. The author recommends to the universities of his country to focus on differences of missions instead of competing for money and to start new relations to their environments. (DIPF/Orig.)
