University of Leicester to launch new US-style flexi-degree option
23 September 2015
The University of Leicester has announced it is to offer all students the chance to study new US-style flexi-degree courses from next September.
The system, which is already standard practice at many universities and colleges in the US, will allow students to select what they study from a series of “major” and “minor” subject options. Students will spend around 75% of their time on the major study option they select, with the remaining 25% on their minor option.
Flexi degrees already exist at a number of other UK universities including Surrey, King’s College London and Sheffield. Paul Boyle, the University’s vice-chancellor, said: “we will identify a series of major courses which offer a standard degree and develop a whole series of minor courses that students can study alongside them.”
