    I posted this somewhere else but anyway.......... are there any quicker ways of getting a degree (instead of the usual 3 years)?
    I messed up 2 years of my current degree because it was the wrong course for me. I have found another course that I am interested in but I don't wanna spend another 3 years doing it.

    So are there any quick ways? Even if they're abroad or if you gotta work from home or gotta pay money etc.

    EDITED TO SAY - I thought I messed up this year of my degree, but turns out I haven't! But I'm still interested in these quick degrees...

    University of Buckingham do 2 year degrees, its a private university though so will cost more than any other in the UK.

    Some universities may let you straight onto the second year of a course if you have relevant qualifications or experience.

    You mean a course that would take into account his/her existing credit?

    Or is there somewhere that claims to grant degrees from scratch in one year? If such exist, they wouldn't be worth the paper they're printed on imho.

    During a degree at university, the year only lasts from the beginning of October to mid-May (about 8 months). Multipy that by 3 (for a 3 year degree), then that equals 24 months, which is 2 years.

    So there must be places out there that offer 1.5-2 year degrees. Online is probably the best bet but I don't know any sites....... I'm searching though.

    What's your current degree? And what do you want to change to?

    I'm doing a maths degree but I'm interested in economics. I'm still browsing prospectuses at the moment to see what I really want to do.

    On a side note........ I was just watching 'Good Will Hunting' the other day, and if Will, being a mathematical genius, wanted to get a degree then would he have to go through 3 years, or would there be a special quick course for geniuses like him..... :confused:
