What are accelerated degrees?

With an accelerated degree (also known as two year degrees or fast-track degrees) you'll still benefit from the full student experience, quality facilities and industry connections on offer from Teesside University. But, unlike a traditional three-year course, you'll graduate in two years with the same degree.

Accelerated degrees have the same amount of course content as traditional degree programmes, but with shorter breaks from studying, enabling you to complete your course and enter the workplace quicker.

If you know where you're heading and you're in a hurry to get there, an accelerated degree could work for you.

Accelerated degrees allow you to study the equivalent of a traditional three-year degree in just two years.

Two-year degrees are ideal if you're an ambitious learner, able to study in a fast-paced environment and want to progress quickly into your professional career.
