In Britain there are a number of different kinds of institutions of Higher Education. First of all, of course, there are the universities. Nobody can have failed to have heard of Oxford and Cambridge, the two oldest universities in England, but, of course, there is a large number of universities, many of which have opened since the war. The latest of these is the Open University, a unique institution, which, as its name suggests, is open to all. Students of the Open University are not obliged to have any previous qualifications. All the students are part time and are taught through the medium of television and radio, although they do receive some personal tuition as well as through centers located near their own homes. The first graduates were awarded their degrees in 1973.
Besides the universities there are other institutions such as Poly-mechanics and Technical Colleges. These tend to offer courses of a vocational mature as well as academic courses. If a student wants to study Management, Accounting or Librarianship, for example, he would be more likely to go to one of these institutions. Colleges of Education provide training and education for prospective teachers.
The vast majority of students receive grants from their Local Authority, which cover tuition fees and allow a certain amount of money to the students to pay for their keep and their books. Most of the colleges and universities have a good proportion of students from overseas.
