"快速" 两年制本科学位有望成为英格兰地区学生未来的一大选择。与三年制课程相比,两年制课程总共可省下20%的学费。负责英国大学事务的大臣山姆·吉马(Sam Gyimah)已证实,政府有计划允许英国大学对较短、较密集的课程收取更高的学费。

文字稿

Instead of studying for three years, at 30 weeks a year, the government wants more universities to provide fast-track courses with degrees taught in two years with 45 weeks of studying.

比起每年三十周、共计三年的学制,英国政府希望更多的大学能提供快速课程,两年教授本科学位,每年学习四十五周。

These shorter, more intensive courses would mean savings of about £5,500 in tuition fees and a year's worth of accommodation and living costs. The Universities Minister Sam Gyimah thinks it'll particularly help to reverse the decline in the number of mature students.

这些耗时更短、更密集的课程意味着每个学生能省下约5500镑的学费以及一年的住宿费和生活费。英国大学事务大臣山姆·吉马认为这一做法尤其有利于扭转成人学生人数下降的趋势。

Even though the overall cost would be lower than studying for three years, each year would have tuition fees equivalent to about £11,000 per year - above the current maximum limit of 9,250. Such a change of the fee system would have to be approved by Parliament and that could prove a significant stumbling block.

尽管两年制本科学位的总花费要低于三年制的学费,但每年的学费相当于1.1万英镑,高于目前每年9250英镑的上限。这种收费体系的改革需要获得议会的批准,而这也许会成为两年制本科学位课程是否能成功推行最大的阻碍。
