520    More students than ever before go to university, and what 
       they experience there is vastly different from even a 
       decade ago. The hi-tech libraries, designer lecture 
       theatres, funky cafes and elaborate sporting facilities 
       hide a reality very different to all the marketing hype. 
       Class sizes have blown out, facilities are often 
       inadequate, technology has increasingly replaced face-to-
       face teaching, and staff are weighed down by impossible 
       workloads. Students work long hours in often low paid, 
       casual jobs, feel lonely and isolated, and their education
       leaves them in debt for years. Richard Hil lifts the lid 
       on today's university experience, drawing on numerous 
       studies as well as interviews with 150 students around the
       country. Far from producing rounded citizens and flexible,
       job-ready graduates, Hil argues universities are turning 
       out individuals often unable to obtain relevant work and 
       lacking in some of the most basic professional 
       requirements, and without the analytical and critical 
       skills that once were the hallmark of a university 
       education.
