The courses in Information Science at the City University (formerly Northampton College of Advanced Technology), which started with a two‐year part‐time evening course in January 1961, were the first in the world to attempt to cover the whole field of information work as a definitive discipline. They were based on the syllabus devised by the Institute of Information Scientists. The success of the evening course led to the establishment of a full‐time one‐year course in September 1963. Drexel College of Technology, in the United States, had started a one‐year course earlier in 1963. The original one‐year course in London was for an academic year, and led to a Diploma. When the College became the City University, in 1967, the full‐time course was extended to a calendar year, and this leads to the degree of Master of Science in Information Science. Researches are also being undertaken.
