On Monday two dozen teachers from Glasgow and the surrounding counties met in Strathclyde University to start a conversion course in economic history that will allow them to graduate with full honours in two years time. Many have already taken a part-time class to qualify for admission.

This summer and next, they will spend two full months on courses identical to those taken by final year students in the university, following them up with classes one night a week throughout the winter, and meanwhile producing a dissertation which is an essential part of the honours course. In 1973, they will sit the same exams as students who have been continuously in the university for four years.
