The challenge was accepted by students on Staffordshire’s BA in Cartoon and Comic Arts, and Dr Vigurs commissioned a number of them to translate the findings of her project with University of Manchester education scholars Diane Harris and Steven Jones, funded by the Society for Research into Higher Education, into comic strips. Eight of the students she interviewed found their experiences transformed into comic strips for the publication, titled Higher Fees, Higher Debts: Greater Expectations of Graduate Futures? A Research-Informed Comic.
