Government pledges university advert revamp to crack down on ‘Mickey Mouse’ degrees

GBNews published this video item, entitled “Government pledges university advert revamp to crack down on ‘Mickey Mouse’ degrees” – below is their description.

Adverts for university courses must include information on dropout rates and the proportion of students who go on to graduate jobs or further study, to avoid students being trapped on “dead-end courses”, the Government has said.

Under new guidance published on Friday, universities will have to include comparable data on the proportion of students who drop out in their adverts, as well as the likelihood of going on to a graduate job or further study after finishing the course.
