These studies at a distance started in 1996,
continuing on the practical studies done at
Reading University and incorporating some
of the theoretical work from the simultaneous
studies at the Open University. It is well recognized
that open and distance education is a new field.
Although done at a distance, a total of more than
900 postgraduate fully-accredited points were
admitted ( compared to 500 usually needed for
a standard doctorate )
