Degrees higher cost, less teaching, less value.

University students are only studying 13 hours per week on average, despite tuition fees trebling. That’s fewer hours than the average part-time job! And, according to the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) poll of 9,000 university students, those attending ‘new’ universities (former Polytechnics upgraded to universities after 1992) worked less than those at traditional ‘Red Brick’  institutions, who were given a whole extra hour of tuition.
