Event Summary

This webinar is hosted by Jon Cheek, the Founder and Director of UniTasterDays. Guidance is provided for students to help them make good choices when considering university. The guest speaker for this event is Arione McQueenie, the UK Student Recruitment Manager at University of Buckingham.

What is a two-year degree
Arione talks about what a two-year degree is at university and where you can study this in the UK. She explains whether it has the same value as a normal degree and how it takes place – bearing in mind that they are still relatively new.

Arione goes on to speak about how all the content you will learn is fit into two years and how holidays differ if you undertake this degree. She speaks about what a typical week at university looks like and the benefits of this type of degree. Finally, Arione talks about why it is important to ask current students about their experience and debunks myths regarding two-year degrees. She also touches on work placements and internships.
