Flexible programmes We offer 4-year liberal arts and business BA degrees and 1 year m asters programmes, each with dual U s and UK recognition. t he undergraduate introductory year allows students freedom to explore a much broader-based curriculum than at many other universities. As a result, undergraduates do not have to commit to a particular programme when they enter the University and are not limited just to subjects studied previously at school or college.
