The Edexcel degre is here

As reported in the Higher, Royal Holloway has reached agreement with Pearson, the parent company of Edexcel, to develop a Business Studies degree. The degree will be delivered through FE colleges and other providers.

This is another demonstration that the relaxation of Degree Awarding Powers criteria set out in the White Paper isn't really necessary to achieve the Government's goals for higher education, a point I made at excessive length here, but which (IMHO) bears making again.
