The changing nature of the undergraduate market and the new fee structure has renewed the interest in part-time study. People at any stage in their career can benefit from this type of programme. Supporting your staff to obtain a degree is recognised as an excellent way to develop and retain members of staff.

Degree level study can benefit all organisations and businesses, from large multinationals to small local companies, as well as the public sector and non profit sector. Many sectors are facing technical and professional skills shortages and your staff can improve their business knowledge whilst continuing to contribute to your organisation.
