    This paper discusses how participation in education has been affected by current
    educational policy assumptions that emphasise rational, cognitive decision-making
    and individual choice within an economistic discourse. It draws on a study of
    students participating in a ‘health issues in the community’ programme (reported on
    in Allan and Tett, 2005) to explore both how policy changes have influenced
    provision and how the subjective experience of engaging in education is bound up
    with other life events and experiences.
