THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar assesses the future for flexible provision at UK universities, including the introduction of accelerated degrees and the future role of credit transfer.
It follows the passage of the Higher Education Research Act, which encourages universities to offer more accelerated courses, and is timed to bring out key themes in the expected Government consultation later this year on higher annual fee limits.
Delegates will consider key issues for HEIs and students including the pricing, marketing and demand for accelerated courses, practical issues for provision affecting the teaching workforce, the use of resources and facilities, and catering for the individual and extenuating circumstances of students.
Further sessions focus on switching university or degree and the role of credit transfer in delivering more flexible courses, as well as the regulatory challenges for the mix of two and three-year degrees, implications for the wider higher education market and key lessons from European best practice.
The agenda also discusses the possible impact of more flexible provision on the development of skills and employability, and the potential for supporting greater social mobility.
