Choosing the Right STEM Degree Course: Investigating the Information Available
This report focuses on progression from post-16 education in schools and colleges into STEM first degree programmes and proposes a number of recommendations for improving levels of communication among the main stakeholders.
SCORE commissioned the Centre for Education and Industry, which is based at the University of Warwick, to collect evidence about the qualifications and combinations of subjects that enable students to progress into STEM degrees in the UK. The study was designed to confirm or disprove commonly held perceptions and identify any underlying policy issues for SCORE to address. The evidence and information gained through the research was intended to assist the development of clear and accurate guidance for students, teachers and parents, with a view to ensuring that all candidates can have access to the same information.
