Record type: Book Section


In the UK participation in higher education has risen over the past two decades, along with a shift of the costs of higher education onto the individual and a move to widening articipation among previously underrepresented groups. This has lead to changes in the way individuals fund their higher education, in particular a rise in the incidence of term time employment. Term time employment potentially plays a much bigger role than in the past, both as a means for individuals to fund their education and reduce debt, and as a way to potentially gain valuable experience and increase employability. With the increase in the number of graduates in the UK labour market it is now more important for individuals to be able distinguish themselves, with one way through work experience and gaining transferable skills.
