A bridge too far: is a degree the right path?Studies of graduate destinations generally report positive outcomes for working-class graduates, particularly professionally validated programmes such as pharmacy or social work, which offer specific career pathways.

It is as if such students are unable to move beyond working-class jobs and embrace the middle-class careers that a degree should unlock.
