“Being on the fast track course means you build a really close relationship with your other cohort members particularly over the extra semester in the summer months. The course content is engaging and the tutors are really helpful and approachable. I can honestly say that applying to the University of Gloucestershire has changed my life. I will be graduating in a very short two years with the added bonus of saving myself a full years tuition fees."
