    Here’s another topic of the week:

    “Should universities be preparing students for the job market or should they be educating students in a discipline for its own sake, or is there a middle way they should be aiming for?”

    One thing I’d personally be interested to hear about is to what extend students do feel prepared for the job market by their degree. (Obviously some degrees are more vocational than others, I raise this topic with the arts and humanities in mind, but I think it is interesting and important to compare a range of experiences from different degrees.)

    It would also be great to hear from staff about what they think their role as teachers is in relation to their students’ future career.

    Long or short, any comment is always welcome.
