University successes for London Extension courses
THE London Newman Circle
-IL organised 13 lecture courses in
the year 1953-54, with a total regis
tration of 450 students, including eight University of London Extension Courses of 24 lectures each, one of which was designed to prepare entrants for the first-year examination for the university's new Extension Diploma in Sociology.
Twenty-eight Newman students passed this examination, five of them with merit.
The university also set examinations for the two theology courses. Twelve out of 13 entrants passed, five with distinction.
Outstanding features of the past year's work were the high registration for the theology courses, now in their seventh year, and the enthusiastic welcome given to the new course in sociology, which was duplicated on account of the large attendance.
The prospectus for the autumn and spring terms, which may be obtained from the Registrar at 31 Portman Square, W.I, includes a course in preparation for the second-year examination of the Diploma in Sociology, with the first-year course repeated.
The number of theology courses has been increased to three, and there are also four courses in philosophy (including one on the philosophy of science), two in psychology, and one in Holy Scripture.
