Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And the universities are?

The universities are paid to be.

The problem in the UK is more that there are too many cartoon universities offering cartoon courses.

I looked up my old alma mater and the course content isn't any easier than when I did it - but the course has been extended with an additional year and now leads directly to a masters.

This seems sensible. But other unis are offering comedy comp sci with a bit of Android development and a few essays.

The differences are obvious with experience, but perhaps not so obvious to eighteen year olds.
