The BBC reports:
The number of British part-time students in the UK fell 3% between 2007 and 2008, to 762,340. Wales saw the biggest fall in part-time students from the UK (down 9%). In England, the fall was 3% and in Scotland and Northern Ireland, it was 4%.
In the meantime Chris Dillow has cast doubt on the supposed earnings premium that graduates can expect to receive as a result of their degrees.

The government has been asking students to pay higher fees to contribute to the cost of their education, pointing to the earnings premium to bolster their case.

Any connection?
