Detail of outcome
Summary of responses we received, along with the government’s response outlining the next steps.
The regulatory impact assessment related to this consultation is available at Accelerated degree courses: assessment of impact.
We’re consulting on changes to the annual tuition fee cap, together with a range of measures to incentivise innovation and encourage wider provision and take-up of accelerated degrees.
Accelerated degrees give students the opportunity to study the same content and quality of degree as a standard 3-year course over 2 years.
By compressing study into 2 years:
- the overall cost of a degree is cheaper for the student and higher education provider
- graduates can enter or return to the workplace a year faster than those studying over 3 years
