This report is about undergraduate students' experience of, and attitudes towards, part-time study, its costs and student support. It was commissioned by Universities UK and GuildHE (previously SCOP).<br />

<br />

The study was carried out by Professor Claire Callender of London South Bank University, the Policy Studies Institute, and GfK NOP Ltd. It is based on an online survey of 2,654 students drawn from 25 higher education institutions (HEIs) in the UK, and was conducted between November 2005 and<br />

January 2006.<br />

<br />

The students surveyed were not representative of all part-time undergraduates in the UK, and overrepresent students undertaking a first degree.
