The project; the research; students on courses into employment; the segmented graduate labour market; the changing labour market; patterns of graduate destinations; the stratified system of higher education; the competent graduate; conclusions and policy implications. Most higher education courses claim to be preparing their students for something in life: a job, a better life. This book is based on studies which, supported by the CNAA, examine this claim through the experiences and views of graduates. The studies took the form of longitudinal surveys of two large panels of graduates, conducted between 1983 and 1989. Whether and how higher education courses prepare students for employment and enable graduates to find suitable, worthwhile and satisfying jobs is the central theme of this study. It provides an analysis of some of the evidence collected, and aims to increase the understanding of the nature of higher education and the labour market relationship, to the advantage of higher education institutions and their students.
