A very interesting article I wrote yesterday about a report from the Sutton Trust, a foundation whose aim is to improve social mobility through education. Most surprising is the lack of financial assistance for postgraduates; the report recommends this be implemented. It makes for a very interesting read, given the larger, ongoing funding ‘crisis’ for postgraduate study.
A report by the Sutton Trust has found that students with postgraduate degrees are increasingly edging out other graduates from top graduate jobs in the UK. The head of the foundation, Sir Peter Lampl, fears this is reducing social mobility by pricing out poorer students who only have an undergraduate qualification.
