Value for money: is university always a good investment?


Panel discussion Bartholomew - level 1 'T'

University: what a waste of money, eh? This is, of course, nonsense in any number of ways. But that has not stopped undergraduate education, in the era of tuition fees, being painted as a costly waste of time and resources for some undergraduates. This session will bring together a cocktail of expertise in the economic value of university education, critical policy analysis, and frontline teaching to address this fundamental challenge to the ideal of higher education for all, as both a public and private good.
