Originally published in 1964 The Experience of Higher Education reports the findings of about 400 intensive interviews with final year undergraduates at three universities – Cambridge, Leeds and Southampton – and a College of Advanced Technology in London. The discussion concentrates upon the aims and expectations with which students enter higher education; the relationship between teacher and pupil; the influence of residential patterns; and the students sense of the relevance of their education in a wider social context. The final chapter is a more personal reflection, in the light of the enquiry, upon the ideals and purposes of higher education.
