Accelerated Degrees

If you're looking to fast-track your career, then our accelerated degrees could be for you.

This mode of delivery takes a traditional three-year undergraduate degree and condenses the modules into a shorter timeframe. In general, this means you'll be working across three study blocks per year, instead of two. This includes through the summer, which is the best time to be living in Cornwall if you're an on-campus student.

With a busier schedule you'll be well supported, with additional contact hours, academic guidance and year-round access to our industry-standard facilities for on-campus students. You'll receive teaching excellence and industry connections.

Benefits of an accelerated degree

  • Progress faster and be ready to join the workplace in only two years if you study full-time.
  • Have the potential to save money on tuition fees, accommodation and living costs depending on your chosen course.


  • If you choose to study an on-campus degree, you'll be eligible for a long course loan, in addition to the maintenance loan. For information on online study funding, click here.

  • Stand out to future employers by demonstrating your ability to perform under stricter time pressures.
