Inspiring (I1B)

Expand the opportunities for academic and career flexibility.

Details

Flexibility of academic provision will be key to responding to the changing needs of society, whilst continuing our investment in our more stable underlying academic base.

By 2013 BU will have implemented a common academic structure (CAS), with a common timetable where the majority of units start and end simultaneously.

In addition by 2013 we will develop and implement a joint honours scheme which will have a double benefit. Firstly it will provide a means for students to study a broader mix of subjects through a combination of two defined halves. Secondly it will offer us a low-risk mechanism to test new markets.
