Abstract

Participation in post-compulsory education has grown dramatically in the UK in recent times. The proportion of young people going to university to study full time has increased from 13 per cent in 1980 to 33 per cent in 2000.

Other questions relate to whether education directly affects people’s workplace productivity either depending on the relevance of their degree subject or because more education may act merely as a signal of higher productivity.
