UWL Vice Chancellor Peter John CBE welcomed FedEx candidates to the University of West London as the first-ever enrolments to the brand new Express Logistics Manager Degree.

FedEx candidates from across the UK have enrolled for the thirteen module three year degree course delivered while employed and working at a FedEx station.

Dr Tracey Worth explains,

The candidates start with introduction to strategic management in express logistics, roles and duties. ‘What is this thing we call express?’ Structure of same day next day, streams of goods and source to door. No student loan, the three year programme is a degree apprenticeship paid by levy. The candidates learn while they work in sector, mixing blended learning with knowledge skills and behaviours mapped by sector operators to the work environment.
