It is our intention to proceed with regulations to set the new accelerated degree fee caps as soon as possible, subject to parliamentary approval.

Once approved, providers will be able to offer accelerated degree courses at values up to the higher annual fee cap. It will be for providers to decide whether, as a result of this change, they will expand existing accelerated course provision or offer accelerated degrees for the first time.
