Abstract

This paper reports on curriculum and course structure development, a pilot program to address the needs of entry point for adult students into the tertiary studies in Iceland. With the new program structure, we seek to appeal to older students, working people who missed their opportunity to go to university as young adults for various reasons. Also, we seek to appeal to young adults that wish to attend a shorter university program, 90 ECTS with the option of continue to a full B.Sc. Degree later.
