Over recent decades, national Higher Education sectors across the world have experienced a gradual process of marketisation. This book offers a new interpretation on why and how marketisation has taken place within England. It explores distinct assumptions on the nature of graduate work and how the graduate labour market drives the argumentation for more market and choice. Demonstrating the flaws in these assumptions - which are based on an idealised relationship between Higher Education and high-skilled work - this book fills an important need by questioning the current rationale for further marketisation.
