Accelerated Degrees

  • Some universities (eg Buckingham) offer Accelerated Degrees studied during two years (as opposed to three) for those students exceptionally bright enough to assimilate information in a shorter time.
  • Benefits: cheaper fees overall and the ability to start work sooner.
  • Disbenefits: affects quality of life, the normal perception of student experience, limiting socialising time and criticised as unrealistic.
  • Potentially higher dropout rates resulting in greater financial loss as opposed to savings.

About the author


Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
