Since 2006, HEPI has run the Student Academic Experience Survey, generally in conjunction with the Higher Education Academy. This shows a big gap between students’ prior expectations and their time in higher education. It also shows the degree to which prior expectations are met explains students’ perceptions of value for money and other key factors.
Yet we know relatively little about those prior expectations. So HEPI and Unite Students jointly set out to ask higher education applicants what it is they are hoping for and expecting.
The results are illuminating and will be of interest to applicants, all those who advise people about higher education, higher education institutions, policymakers and the media.
