What our students say (2003):

"My computer skills are improving daily, the next step is to add photo's to my work. It is good to be in study mode again."

"Since starting this degree, I have found that I very much enjoy the Ultraversity approach to learning. I was concerned about how this degree would affect my job within the school but I now feel that it will be a great support system for my role and a good opportunity for developing my knowledge and abilities."

"Have been logging onto the community software every day this week to catch up on the gossip! Have made my first few tentative comments and got a real buzz from contributing to the discussion."

"From the discussions I have gained knowledge on resources,ideas, websites, books and a wide variety of behaviour strategies to use in the classroom. I enjoy learning from the other researchers and passing the ideas on. I have gained so much confidence using the Jellyos and my outlook is just have a go because eventually you get there."

This isn't a case of degrees getting easier, it's not a "postal;" degree, or a rather dubious "pay and graduate" degree from a place you've never heard of; or an "equivalent qualification"; it is a full British degree, will involve several UK universities, has high quality, cares about standards and cares about students. Above all it is a new way to graduate that values the context, including (but not only) full time work, that our learners are in. You would normally complete it in three years.

If you love what you do and want to move forward in it, whether you are a mum or an Olympic athlete, a teaching assistant in primary/secondary school or a foyer assistant in at West End play, a school ICT technician or a corporate network manager, then this personalised degree is designed to help you move forward. The Ultralab learning technology research centre is the best in Europe; you will be in safe (and friendly) hands.

It's a degree so you'll need to think and reflect and research, but because of that, and because it allows you to continue doing what you enjoy, it will be a delightful experience.

Even after you graduate there will be a role and a place for you in the Ultraversity project if you want.
This may just be the beginning of something rather enjoyable... it's certainly designed to be !
