BIS - Accelerated Courses and Switching University or Degree - response

14 July 2016

Switching university or degree

Russell Group universities are committed to providing our talented students and outstanding staff with a stimulating and supportive environment where they can achieve their very best. Our universities have high levels of student satisfaction and some of the best completion rates in the UK. However, for some students, for example those who undergo a change in personal circumstances, institution or course transfer can provide a route to degree completion.

Accelerated courses

There are a number of reasons why providing accelerated degrees in universities which excel in high-level, research-led teaching is problematic. Shortened courses would require academics to teach in periods typically designated for research, making the provision of research-led teaching extremely difficult.
