A private university in England has changed their curriculum to offer a two-year degree and its students highly approve. A two-year degree may make more economic sense in our times. "According to its vice chancellor, Terence Kealey, the shorter length of his university's courses makes them much better. 'That's because they sustain the train of thought throughout the two-year period without the long artificial gaps, particularly the summer holidays,' he says. 'The common justification for the summer break is that it's an occasion for students to reflect in depth,' he continues. 'But if you ask students what they do in that vacation, you find they don't reflect, they just go on holiday.'"
