Abstract

One of the pivotal transformations in the marketisation of higher education has been the introduction of tuition fees. A degree from a higher education institution can now, to some extent, be purchased like any other commodity. In this post Louise Bunce presents evidence that students who identify as consumers of their education perform worse academically than students motivated by an interest in the content of their courses.
