§ Mr. Maclean
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list the number of graduates from the Open University from the date of its inception and the subject matters of their degrees.
§ Mr. Brooke
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Macclesfield (Mr. Winterton) on 6 June at column188. The Open university offers only general degrees (BA and BA (Hons)). The subjects covered are arts, the social sciences, educational studies, mathematics, science and technology. A list of the course subjects offered to undergraduates up to 1982 starts on page 178 of volume 1 of its "Digest of Statistics, 1971–82", a copy of which is in the Library.
