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.”

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
