This guide provides an overview of the 50 discipline profiles that have been produced in consultation with the 24 Higher Education Academy Subject Centres. It is designed to facilitate the use of the profiles within the higher education community by suggesting ways in which these resources can be used to:
- Inform curriculum design
- Support the delivery of employability skills development in undergraduate students
- Enhance the understanding of prospective students and their parents as to the value of degree level study
- Communicate more effectively with employers (especially non-cognate) in a shared language the skills that students are likely to have developed with degrees in particular subjects.
