We report on how graduate attainment has changed over this period, and the extent to which these changes can be statistically accounted for by changes in certain characteristics of the graduate population.

The impact of student loan minimum eligibility requirements - Institute For Fiscal Studies - IFS

The impact of student loan minimum eligibility requirements - Institute For Fiscal Studies - IFS | Higher education news for libraries and librarians | Scoop.it

In February 2022, the government announced reforms to the English higher education system as part of its long-awaited response to the 2019 Augar Review of post-16 education. In addition to introducing changes to the student loan system,[1] the government also opened a consultation on further changes to the system (Department for Education, 2022a), including on the introduction of a minimum eligibility requirement (MER) for access to student loans.
The two specific proposals being consulted on are to set this minimum eligibility requirement at having at least a 4/C grade in English and maths GCSEs, or to set this at two A levels (or equivalents) at grade E or above. Students who do not achieve these qualifications would not be eligible for student loans. Certain groups of students would be exempt from these proposals, such as those who fail the GCSE requirement but who go on to obtain ‘good’ A levels (i.e. at least three grade Cs), students above the age of 25, part-time students and students who have obtained Level 4 or Level 5 qualifications.
In this briefing note, we consider who would be affected by each of the proposed MERs, and then assess whether the introduction of an MER is likely to achieve the government’s stated aim of ensuring that ‘students undertaking degree study have attained the baseline skills required to engage with and benefit from the course’ (Department for Education, 2022a).

 Mental Health Podcast  PHD students

 Mental Health Podcast  PHD students | Higher education news for libraries and librarians | Scoop.it

SMaRteN: the Student Mental Health Research Network. We were joined by Hope Williard from the University of Lincoln who was discussing her 2022-2023 AHRC-RLUK funded project 'Supporting Development of Digital Literacies Among Doctoral Students in History'. 

Such skills are a fundamental part of PhD research in the twenty-first century: doctoral researchers produce, consume, and interact with all manner of information in online environments. This insightful session touched upon important themes around 'gap filling' and how helping students to develop effective online communication skills and a knowledge of practical digital tools can help them to better integrate within the academic community and manage their workload. This is an important area and Hope's project provides considerations which can have much broader applications across disciplines.

Subject Bench mark statements QAA

The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) is launching the latest iteration of its subject benchmark statements today. First published in 2001, today’s publications describe what graduates can be expected to know, do, and understand at the end of their course. Developed by subject matter experts, professional bodies, key employers, and former students, these non-binding benchmarks are frequently used by academics developing courses and by students and employers holding providers to account.
