Study abroad information, tips, student testimonials and other useful information for students attending language programs, high schools and universities abroad
The UK Department for Education has announced the expansion of accelerated two-year degree programs for universities in England, following a consultation period.The government said that two-year bachelor degrees would encourage new providers into the market, help students to fast-track their way into the workforce, and create “an unprecedented level of choice and flexibility”.
The UK Department for Education has agreed to a new fee system which will allow providers to charge 20 per cent more per year for domestic/EU students, a fee structure that will provide a saving to students of at least 20 per cent (approximately UK£5,500) for the total cost of a degree, he said. The proposals for courses fees will require parliamentary approval.
The government response to the scheme does not detail course fees for non-EU students. For standard three-year degrees, fees are capped for domestic/EU students, but providers are free to set fees for non-EU students.
