Our fast track degrees

As a fast-track student, I completed my degree in two years – a pace made achievable by the well-structured degree at Gloucestershire, involving some concentrated work in the summer but leaving enough time to enjoy the vacation period. The programme was interesting, challenging and enjoyable and opened doors that I never knew existed.

“I am currently studying Business Management (fast-track). It’s an amazing course! I absolutely love the teachers and my tutor. They’re all so helpful and I think the fast-track course is a much better option than the 3 years undergraduate courses for students that want to progress in their careers at a young age because there is continuous lessons and the information is always “fresh”, one module relates to another and that’s beneficial.”​​
