Now there are over 2.3 million students in Higher Education - almost half of all school leavers. But has this huge growth in 'Uni' really been the great success that politicians and universities would have us believe? After all, what's the point of having a degree if one in every two people has one and if less than one in ten students on many courses will find a graduate job? THE GREAT UNIVERSITY CON exposes the truth behind the massive expansion of Britain's university sector - millions of graduates with useless degrees in pointless subjects from third-rate universities with little chance of finding a graduate job but with a lifetime of unrepayable debt.
