Why the accelerated degree
This accelerated degree programme is designed to prepare you for active participation in the management of business. It includes building a wide range of personal skills and experience demanded by employers and to get you into the world of work in a shorter time. It is a full-time programme offered in partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University.
The two year degree
- An intensive, fast track degree offering as much academic content in two years
- Allows you to start working and earning one year earlier.
- You make full use of the whole year, including the long summer holiday period
- The accelerated degree compresses a three-year traditional program into a two-year degree by extending teaching throughout the summer months. The idea is to offer students the option of saving on some of the costs of tuition and moving on to the job marketplace sooner.
Because an accelerated degree requires the same amount of work as a three-year programmme, students experience a more rigorous workload, and a good deal of dedication is needed to succeed. Because you’ll be studying the same amount of material as a traditional student, but in a shorter time, you’ll need to be dedicated and organised.
This type of degree offers a more flexible and cheaper way of studying a degree. Meanwhile, you only have to pay two years’ tuition fees and can cut accommodation and living costs by up to a third.
The accelerated degree is a powerful example of how higher education can offer innovative new programmes that meet the needs of students and fit better with their circumstances. Research published by the Higher Education Academy shows that two- year degrees are working for students and provide a quality product valued not only by employers but professional bodies too.
Shorter degrees are one way of adapting study to suit different personal circumstances, supporting the work/life balance and lifelong learning.
