Over 270,000 students enrolled for a postgraduate course in 2007-08, with the sector seeing growth of 27% in masters’ degrees and 9% in doctoral degrees. These domestic growth rates however, are much lower than those of students from overseas and now 50% of masters’ students and 44% of doctoral students are international students. This new report by the British Library and the Higher Education Policy Institute provides an overview of the postgraduate education sector in the UK. It focuses on current numbers of students, profiles and trends, regional disparities and costs and benefits.
