2 year degree courses in the UK

What is a 2-year degree?

A 2-year degree is a fast-track degree that can be completed in just 2 years of study and exams. The content and qualifications are the same as traditional 3-year degree programs but condensed into 2 years. 

The reason why so many Canadians and Americans are interested in completing a UK degree in 2 years as it means that they will ultimately be paying lower tuition fees and living costs, plus the opportunity to begin their career a year sooner than many of their peers.

What degrees can I study in 2 years?

Some degrees that have a 2-year option include Law, Accounting, Business Management, Business Studies, English, Finance, Geography, Marketing, Tourism, and some joint degrees.  

Many students interested in these degrees will benefit from the shorter university experience as they will be qualified to enter the workforce sooner than if they enrolled in a longer degree structure. Additionally, students will often be saving approximately $10,000 CAD* by enrolling in the fast-track degree. 

* Prices vary depending on the institution, subject and the current exchange rate. Speak to SI-UK for more information on costs.
