    HEFCE introduces first ever measure of vocational degrees

    For the first time, it is possible to compare subjects based on how vocational they are, using a new measure called the occupations subject concentration ratio. HEFCE does not suggest that subjects should become more or less vocational. Less vocational subjects offer a broad range of options to graduates, while more vocational subjects restrict these options in a graduate’s early career. HEFCE believes this information can help potential students choose which degree subject to study. HEFCE states that this is an experimental measure and are keen to receive any comments, feedback or suggestions on it and its potential uses.
