Studying at London Met, you'll receive a professional education that enables you to be both locally responsible and globally-networked. **Accelerated two year degree** A two-year accelerated degree is an intensive degree programme and the final award is the same as the award that would be given at the end of an equivalent three-year degree. The intensity of learning is far greater than the intensity of learning on a three-year degree, and the course is designed for high achieving candidates who are looking to fast-track their career. With this accelerated degree you could progress to a PGCE / QTS course after two years rather than three. The course will support your preparation for the skills tests required for a PGCE / QTS course. Students graduating from the degree and who hold a GCSE grade C or equivalent in English, mathematics and a science are guaranteed an interview for a PGCE or equivalent route to QTS at London Met.
