Should students really have to put their ambitions on hold to attend university for 3 years? We think not.
Students are being forced to put their careers on hold because of a university establishment fixated on outdated timescales according to Debi Hayes, Provost of GSM London – one of the UK’s largest independent higher education institutions.
“The vast majority of students getting their A Levels this week will have little choice but to take a place on a three year degree programme that has vast stretches of empty time to fill between terms. While this will no doubt suit many, career focused students keen to quickly develop and start applying degree level skills could be forgiven for being disappointed at the range of options available.”
GSM London is one of an increasing number of independent providers offering accelerated two year degree programmes, but funding policy currently restricts students from being able to cover the full costs of study without self-funding.
