Abstract:

The Highest Education is the first thorough study of the growth of students at British universities from the 1940s to 1975, particularly in the field of postgraduate study. The book reviews the history of graduate education in Britain and evaluates the purpose of postgraduate study. It looks at research students in the context of university, and the world at large, and discusses the different needs of full-time and part-time students. The book addresses the conflicts between student aims and that of the university staff, and discusses how far universities make adequate provision for their graduate students and how their studies are supervised. The additionally book looks at students’ finances and examines the policies and costs which are involved in higher education institutions.
