Summary

As higher education has expanded, it has diversified both in terms of its institutional form and the characteristics of its students. However, what we do not know is the extent to which it has also diversified in terms of 'what is learned'. In this book the authors explore this question through the voices of higher education students, using empirical data from students taking 15 different courses at different universities across three subject areas - bioscience, business studies and sociology. The study concentrates on the students' experience, lives, hopes and aspirations while at university, through data from interviews and questionnaires, and this is collated and assessed alongside the perspectives of their teachers and official data from the universities they attend.
