Implications for society
During the course of the SOMUL project, several hundred students talked to us about their experiences of higher education, about how it had changed them and how it had equipped them for the future. Some things were broadly shared, others distinctive to the particular subject studied, or the institutional context or the circumstances and orientations of the individual student. Some of the things that were said broadly chimed with the perspectives of their teachers, of their institutions and of government policy. Other things did not.
