A degree still makes a real difference

Gemma Fagbadegun

Both the Financial Times and The Guardian recently discussed research conducted by the Resolution Foundation into the value of a university degree.

It was found that 'those with degrees were more likely to see their earnings rise as they got older, while those with just GCSEs or A-levels were more likely to see their pay fall.'

Even more interesting was the fact that 'the difference was even more accentuated during the 2000s compared with the 1990s', which contrasts with the common belief that a degree has less value today.

We're pleased to see discussions in the press about this topic, as we have long held the belief that a university degree is key to enabling social mobility in this country.
