Mum's and Dad's want their kids to gain a BA Honours, [and why shouldn't they?] and that is the very reason the editor pushed to change the two year graphic design course from a Higher National Diploma [HND] to a university-linked Foundation Degree.

And what a surprise [really?] Wigan School for the Arts Foundation Degree . . .
