Join us in September or January

The 2020/21 academic year will start on 28 September 2020 as planned, but we know some people might not be ready to start a degree at that time. So we’ve introduced an optional later start date in January 2021 for those students who would find this more convenient. You’ll do the same work and end up with the same degree.
