United Kingdom



Higher education in England (as with the rest of the UK) typically starts with a 3-4 year undergraduate Bachelors degree, on graduation this can then be followed by a postgraduate qualification such as a Mastersdegree or PhD. If your qualifications or English language ability do not meet the requirements of your chosen University you can also study on a foundation or pre-masters course which are offered as pathway courses onto your chosen degree..

England has been a popular study abroad destination for several decades and has over 340,000 international (non-UK) students, making up around 18% of the total student population.* The most popular subject areas are business and engineering.

England has a diverse mix of almost 100 Universities spread across the country. You will find a lot of choice from rural campus based institutions to large urban Universities that sprawl across a city.

Most major cities in the UK have two or more Universities with London containing over 30 institutions alone. In London many of the degree awarding institutions are part of a larger federal University, the University of London, which contains 18 colleges and 10 specialist research institutes.
