Over recent years, UK universities have undergone a government-driven expansion
of their student intake, with a target of fifty percent of each age cohort graduating with
a degree. The aim was to increase the average educational standard of the UK
educational system as a whole - albeit at the cost of reducing the average academic
standard within the university sector (Smith & Webster, 1997; Charlton, 2002).
