To achieve this, the new Edinburgh University/Edinburgh College of Art, through its merged continuing education provision in which is embedded, at ECA, the fiercely defended part time degree, can exemplify John Henry Newman's "idea of a university". For Newman, a university was not just about the advancement of knowledge, which requires research, entailing high costs if it is to be world leading. Newman's university was also about the widespread dissemination of knowledge through teaching.
If that goal is missed, the costs are even higher: the perpetuation of elitism; social exclusion; disengagement; an undereducated workforce leaving Scotland struggling to make its mark in a fast moving global economy.

They expect that this university college will be 'for them', as it will be for Nike Roshe Run Black And Grey
young people, unable to resort to the famous 'bank of mum and Nike Roshe Run Usa Edition dad', who will find a way to make part time study fit alongside a part time job. As a new department of adult education and art studies is forged inventively between Edinburgh University and the Art College to those of all abilities who want their shot at a world class education the invitation should be clear: "come away in".
The Funding Council's support for both institutions' intentions to develop continuing education provision jointly extends the possibilities for lateral thinking and creative synergies in terms of Nike Roshe Run Mens Black And Gold
