A private university college is set to offer degrees to the health sector – the first such courses from a for-profit provider in the UK.
BPP University College is launching its School of Health, starting this autumn with courses in psychology and nursing.
A three-year psychology degree will cost £15,000, at a time when many universities are set to charge fees of £9,000 per year.
“The education landscape is changing,” says principal Carl Lygo.
This announcement marks the breaking of new ground for profit-making private providers in higher education.
