Who deserves foundation degrees?

Gibbs, Paul ORCID logoORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-9773-3977 (2002) Who deserves foundation degrees? Journal of Further and Higher Education, 26 (3) . pp. 197-206. ISSN 0309-877X [Article] (doi:10.1080/03098770220149567)


In this paper I consider whether the notion of desert has a basis in education in general, and in particular to the proposed new Foundation Degrees. I then explore the notions of higher education that have been put forward as the rationale for their development. On a different tack, I consider whether we should desire these awards rather than deserve them and who are entitled to the benefits. Finally the paper offers an alternative basis for education that could, I believe, form the basis for a higher education system that we all deserve.
