Should universities offer more vocational courses?
Former trade minister Lord Digby Jones says many universities should consider awarding more vocational qualifications. Can universities do more to prepare graduates for work?
The ex-director general of the CBI says degrees do have value but that they are not the best option for all students.
UK universities are attracting record applications but firms often complain graduates do not have the right skills.
Lord Jones said courses need to deal with "the challenges of today".
Are you employer? Do you think graduates have the right skills? Are you a graduate? Has your degree prepared you for the world of work? Should universities offer more vocational courses?
