Record 3 2002-06-13

English

Subject field(s)
  • Educational Institutions
DEF

An institution of higher education, granted its Royal charter as a University in 1969, which uses correspondence materials, radio and television broadcasts, home experimental kits, etc., to enable a large number of adults to study for degrees (and other higher education courses) in their own homes, and on a part-time basis.

CONT

... it is only in the last decade that large numbers of students in the United Kingdom have taken university courses "at a distance". We are referring of course to the Open University which was established in 1969, and which has probably more experience than any other institution of the problem of distance education....
