The University of Bath has launched the UK's first degree in Funeral Services

20 students have started the course developed by the university’s Centre for Death and Society (CDAS).

The degree covers a range of theory and practice to do with funeral rituals, bereavement and ethnical issues. It will also cover how to run a business whilst responding to new laws. Students have the option to study full time for two years or part time for three years.

Caron Staley, Manager of the CDAS, believes the qualification will be very valuable especially for mature students without many qualifications: “This course will give people in the industry the opportunity to acquire a degree level qualification. This is the first time that this has been available for people working within the funeral services.” 

“We are all very excited and looking forward to welcoming the first cohort of students at their induction in September of this year."
