Hubs solution for niche courses

Hubs solution for niche courses | Andrew Trounson | The Australian Higher Educaiotn | 01 June, 2011

A MODEL for concentrating research areas at certain institutions, called hubs and spokes, could be applied to teaching as a way to sustain disciplines that may be affected by low enrolments once the student-driven demand system starts next year. The proposal, which has been informally floated by Universities Australia, could result in some niche disciplines being concentrated in only a few universities. This would allow students from other universities to study at these hubs while receiving full credit towards their home degree.
