First Degrees by Part-Time Study.
Styler, W. E.
Degrees granted for part-time study are minimal in Britain and have been mainly awarded by London University. A small amount of part-time degree work is also carried on by Goldsmiths' College, West Ham College of Technology, and the Universities of Manchester, Durham, and Belfast. The establishment of the National Council for Academic Awards has enabled many students to work for degrees at institutions without degree-awarding powers and part-time study has recently been incorporated into the programs. The demand for part-time study will increase with population growth, especially in the age range of 26 to 40, and with demands for higher qualifications among employees. The Open University is presently in process of creation but it is doubtful that this will satisfy the demand for higher qualifications. Part-time degree study should be provided at the great centers of urban population where a substantial program could be undertaken. (pt)
