Abstract

This paper reports on research into the extent to which engagement in a foundation degree course, both full-time and part-time, has influenced individuals and their workplaces. The target group consisted of students who had completed a foundation degree within the preceding three years (striking a balance between the length of time since their course had concluded and the risk of attenuation of contact between institution and former student), and who were in employment. The main project outcomes were anticipated to be a greater understanding of the students’ educational experiences and of how the students viewed the relevance of their studies to the workplace after a period of time since completing their courses, and the identification of aspects of foundation degrees (in particular) where further development might be profitable.
