This report examines the impact of higher education for part-time undergraduate students. It is based on secondary analysis of data from the Higher Education Statistics Agency's Longitudinal Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (Longitudinal DLHE) survey. The analysis compares how graduates from part- and full-time study fare in the labour market six months and three and a half years after graduation. This is the first time such analysis has been undertaken.
