A NEW Internet service aims to cut drop-out rates among university students by giving them more information about the kind of experience course tutors expect or require them to have.
The Admissions Criteria Profiles, produced by the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service, sets out entry qualifications, selection criteria and other information about courses. Profiles for nine institutions are already on the web, including Plymouth University which piloted the concept this summer. Every course in Britain should be covered by 2001. They can be viewed at www.ucas.ac.uk.
