Unite Kingdom – Academic System

Academic System

The UK is home to number of high quality education institutions. Education here is largely financed by the government, so apart from a few private players higher education is largely quite affordable. The UK houses some of the oldest universities in the world, like Oxford and Cambridge among many others. From modern classrooms to the well-equipped laboratories, the colleges here lack for nothing.

The bachelor’s degree in the UK typically goes on for three years, there are, however, vocational or foundation degrees that can go on for about two years. Many universities offer courses in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) related subjects.

Some courses are known as sandwich courses which last for four years and have one year to spend in the workplace. Post graduate courses can typically last for a year, however, research based courses may take up to 2 years. Doctorate degrees can usually last for up to three years.

The UK has one of the most convenient and easy admission and visa process. The cost of living is also not too high. There is ample practical learning and internships which are designed to make the students confident in their own abilities. The UK education system is designed to ensure that each student graduating is an expert in their chosen subject.
