Online Austen - market research University of Southampton

At the University of Southampton, we would like to produce more online courses focusing on Jane Austen’s fiction.

We are interested in possibly creating more short online courses and Masters programmes related to Jane Austen and we would like to understand more about the market for such courses.

Please help us understand whether you are interested in such courses by helping us to assess the market. Thank you very much in advance!
