That is interesting. I Lecture at the University of London in England. The degree system is very different to the USA but students can do a Masters Degree who have not taken a Batchelors. For people to do this they must first prove that they have a good background professionally and experience. Hence why there are a lot of mid thirty to 40 year olds. I have done exactly that and will be doing a PhD very soon...oh I am male BTW but there are women in the programme but they tend to move towards the psycology aspect of computing. Thanks for the link
