Sleepwalking to Uni?

Over 26,000 students dropped out of university in the last academic year.  This, says Mary Curnock Cook, the chief executive of UCAS, is due to too many teenagers ‘sleepwalking’ into university and not researching their degree courses sufficiently.

“Stumbling from school into university without having found a course that energises you could mean you don’t get the full value of the higher education experience,” Curnock Cook said in a speech to school leaders.

Mrs Curnock Cook was addressing a meeting of the International Baccalaureate Schools and Colleges Association in London.
