Sponsored degrees at IBM
IBM in North Harbour/Hursley used to run a sponsored Computer Science degree in partnership with the University of Portsmouth. However it was canned a year or so after I graduated from it, due to the high costs of running the course (they paid tuition fees and a salary too) and the poor levels of employee retention following graduation.
Many of the other students in my year (I was one of 20), like me, have left. I'd probably still be there if they hadn't put me in such a mind numbingly dull role as an isolated Domino developer in a corporate business function.
