There are several types of degree programs in the UK: Bachelor’s, Foundation, Master’s Degrees and Doctorates or PhDs; all of which are all globally recognized qualifications. You can choose either a 3 year undergraduate degree in England and Wales and graduate with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) or a 4 year sandwich course which includes one year’s professional experience in industry or a year studying abroad.

If you choose to study in Scotland, you can study and graduate with an MA (Master of Arts) or MSc (Master of Science) degree after 4 years. These are undergraduate degrees in Scotland as opposed to graduate degrees and not equivalent to a Master’s degree you would take after a Bachelor’s degree.

HOW ARE BRITISH DEGREES TAUGHT?

  • Lectures - Formal presentations to large groups of students, who take notes on what is said.
  • Seminars - Small groups of eight to twenty students who discuss assigned topics with a tutor. 
  • Tutorials - More informal meetings in which one to three students discuss their work with a tutor. The close contact between student and tutor in seminars and tutorials is a particular strength of UK degree courses.
  • Continuous assessment - Depending on your degree course you will be expected to produce coursework, participate in projects, seminars and exams. Plus, depending on the course, produce a final dissertation and take final exams.
