Call You and Yours: Value for money in higher education

Duration:
41 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 21 August 2012

Call You & Yours: The cost of a traditional degree at an English university could easily saddle post graduates with debts in excess of £50,000 but what are the alternatives? Could students be cannier in how they buy and complete their qualifications? Is the future perhaps online; a handful of English students are choosing to study abroad now and the Open University has long provided an excellent model for those who want to combine study with their paid employment. Now that students are consumers how will the market in education providers change to meet demand? Call us on 03700-100-400 before ten, 03700 100444 after ten, or email us via our website at www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/youandyours; leave us a message or a name and number where we can call you back. Or text us on 84844. Or tweet @BBCRadio4 during the programme, using the hashtag #youandyours.
