• Reasons to study an accelerated degree
Accelerated degrees have the same amount of course content as traditional degree programmes, but there are shorter and fewer holidays and more time spent in the classroom to complete the course quicker.
The precise structure of the course will vary from institution to institution so it is important that you research to find the course which is right for you.
An accelerated degree could be just what you’re looking for if you want to complete your undergraduate degree in the shortest time possible. So, what are the benefits of taking this accelerated route to a degree?
1. Fast-track your learning
As the name would suggest, these courses allow you to obtain a degree quicker than traditional undergraduate degrees. Accelerated degrees can be completed in just two years, rather than the standard three. That means you could start your fantastic career sooner.
2. Save money
Not only will an accelerated degree save you a year of your time, it can also help you look after those all-important pennies, as well as saving on course fees and a whole year of accommodation costs.
3. Challenge yourself
You’ll learn as much as you would on a three-year course, but in less time. The final award is the same as the award given at the end of an equivalent three-year degree programme. These courses offer a brilliant challenge that will really benefit you if you have the focus and determination.
