Getting there by Degrees:

Fast Track (two year Bachelor) Degrees and Flexible Learning Conference

Friday 18th June 2010, University of Plymouth


Dear colleagues,

Higher Education is being asked to become "faster" and "more flexible" and to explore alternative forms of provision, such as two-year degrees and a strengthened commitment to short courses, CPD and up-skilling. These agendas featured prominently in Peter Mandelson's BIS document on "Higher Ambitions". This conference will explore the implications of these developments and identify the likely opportunities and challenges.

This will be the first national conference with a focus on two-year degrees and one of the first to consider progress in the post-Leitch agenda. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from some of the leading figures in these areas and to benefit from their experiences and insights. The programme will include keynotes and workshops from senior colleagues at HEFCE and from universities which are among the leaders in fast-track and flexible learning.

Attendance is free of charge.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Plymouth.
