Looking to the future


Learning without boundaries - A university for the 21st century

For at least the next decade, most universities will continue to be a mixture of old and new buildings, often scattered and overcrowded. The continued volatility of global markets, funding shortfalls and the introduction of new academic subjects will force them to develop resources in relatively short timescales.

Universities and colleges will continue to work in fiercely competitive markets, regionally, nationally and globally and will have to exploit innovative mobile technologies within their corporate strategies.

This case study projects into the future to explore the ways in which mobile and wireless technologies will have become an integral part of everyday student life.
