Don’t shout at the telly: University, what is it good for?

In this on the sofa discussion with Professor of Education Dennis Hayes, a group of students worry about: standards; getting their money’s worth; job prospects on graduation; putting non university options on an equal footing and debt. Professor Hayes argues university is not retail therapy, although a therapeutic culture has degraded the pursuit of knowledge. He suggests frugality is futile and tells us that while you don’t need a degree to be a postman, a postman is also a human being and everyone can benefit from the best possible university education.
