This report fills a major gap in understanding the development of research-based curricula, focusing on college-based higher education (CBHE).
Estimates suggest that, in England, somewhere between 8-10% of HE undergraduate students are taught in CBHE. In 2009, 17% of HE students in Scotland were enrolled in CBHE. In Wales this was 15% and in Northern Ireland 18%.
The report contextualises case studies of the UK experience with similar sectors overseas, including Australia, USA, Canada, and Malaysia. More than 50 studies were gathered during research and the full set is available on the accompanying HEA CBHE project webpage.
