Plans are being made to make some university courses last 2 years instead of 3 years. Students could save themselves upwards of £25,000. I know someone who did business studies at Uni. They said that they could easily have done the course in 2 years. Personally i think it is a good idea. But, will the degree that students who go down this road have the same meaning as those done over a 3 year period? Will firms feel that these degrees are just as good and as valid as a degree that takes longer. Will some people think that reducing the time taken to obtain a degree automatically means that students could not have put in the required amount of time and work to learn enough to obtain a degree that actually means as much? In my opinion, if the work can be done in 2 years without diminsihing the degree, then they should go for it. Clearly there will be degrees where 3 years or more may be required, but i am all for it.
