Been in touch with the provider (Unite) and asked what happens if they don't start 'til January or if the course is online for the year, or part of it. They said they 'don't yet have a policy' but the booking deadline (tomorrow) holds. Bollocks to that then.
Elder daughter is starting a part-time MA in Brighton in September. Less concerned about that because MAs are more about self-directed learning and shit, so it matters very little if it's mostly online.
Middle one was going to start a PGCE but reckons she'll wait a year.
Be interested to know what anyone else is hearing from their kids' unis.
