1-YEAR PRIVATE DEGREES PROGRAMMES LACK QUALITY?

Therefore, I find it hard to comprehend what can be achieved from private degree programmes that can be completed in as short as a year. Even a junior college education, which prepares students for university, needs two years. A polytechnic education takes three years.
