GSM London is one of the few higher education institutions in the UK to run a two-year accelerated BSc (Hons) Economics course.
Of course, accelerated degrees can be intensive, however, the Economics Department has introduced teaching methods that give the student maximum support. These include small classes, opportunities to discuss ideas in workshops and seminars, and the online portal Blackboard, where students can access learning materials.
This high level of support is invaluable when studying a two-year degree as it enables the lecturer or tutor to give students closer guidance. In addition, formative assessment activities are included in many modules so that students can judge their progress before submission of summative assessment. This process helps students to focus their efforts and achieve the best possible results.
