Abstract

The recent changes to the higher education policy focus on enabling quasi-markets through greater institutional competition and the empowerment of students, underpinned by changes to higher education funding. The cost-sharing policies and the subsequent empowerment of students have offered a new space for assertive students in higher education, who continue to seek value-for-money in their educational choice. In this context, using both the education and marketing literature, this article outlines the successive United Kingdom governments’ focus on student choice and examines the concept of perceived value and the process by which students evaluate value from their study experiences. Using three focus group studies and five in-depth interviews conducted with partner college students and graduates in the UK, this article provides evidence to functional values in higher education.
