Description/Abstract

In 1998 the University of Southampton decided to set up a separate faculty tasked with producing courses that would enable it to widen participation in its degree programmes. It was formed out of its Department of Adult Continuing Education and an associated college. This paper examines the design and implementation of a new degree course in IT, how it met the needs, analyses relevant cohort data, and comments on its success.
