Undergraduate (online)

All undergraduate online degrees are accelerated

An accelerated degree condenses your degree modules into two years on the full-time route, or three years on the part-time route. This means you'll be working across three study blocks per year, instead of two, including through the summer.

The number of hours you do on a weekly basis will differ depending on if you study part-time over three years or full-time over two years.
