Fast-track your studies
Study with us in the new year and you can complete your three-year degree in two-and-a-half years* starting in February. The first six months involve intensive learning, with seminars and lectures throughout the summer. We offer more support and smaller classes so that you can progress quickly in your studies and gain some great learning skills for the rest of your degree.
If you're studying a degree with a foundation year, you can complete your foundation year (Year 0) in six months and then start your subsequent three years of study in September. If you're studying a degree with a foundation year in our Guildhall School of Business and Law, you'll start your degree in January. All other foundation-year courses, and traditional undergraduate courses, will begin in February. View our term dates for degrees starting in January / February.
*Please note, any three-year courses in our Guildhall School of Business and Law (covering our business, law and language degrees) do not have the accelerated first year and will take three full years to complete, meaning the course would finish in January 2024 if studied full-time.
