Uk Graduates Position Slips In Oecd Report

Recommended Posts

In 2000, the UK had the third-highest graduation rate among OECD countries, with 37% of young people getting a degree compared with an average of 28%. Denmark and Norway scored the same and only Finland (41%) and New Zealand (50%) were higher. But in 2008 the proportion had fallen to 35%, below an average of 38% and behind countries including Iceland, Portugal and Ireland.

The usual boring thing where quantity is confused with quality (eg bleatings in the press about China having loads of engineering graduates). It was 37% now 35% which really implies that OECD countries are grouped tightly together and have expanded massively rather than that there is a real problem

There is no measure of quality, especially within the UK. The perception of 'good' and 'bad' degrees is based on snobbery and received wisdom.

Higher Education in Britain is delusional, brought to you by the same people who tell you to buy houses.
