The UK traditionally offers 3-year undergraduate degrees and 1-year masters programmes. If you are an international student who did only 12 years high school, foundation courses and International Year One can be your options.
UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES IN THE UK
Majority of applications to UK universities are managed by UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service), where GoUni can guide you through the entire process. An undergraduate degree normally is three-year programme, while some students may wish to take a sandwich course, which will involve one year at a work placement related to your ﬁeld of study.
Students may wish to take top-up degree after completing at least 2-3 years from their previous university degree. Fast-track 2-year degrees are also available at some university.
Are you from a 12-Year high school system?
INTERNATIONAL YEAR ONESuitable for international students who have completed A-levels or a foundation, or who are already in the ﬁrst year of a relevant undergraduate degree in their home country, but do not meet the academic or English language requirements for direct entry to the University.
INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATIONA one-year preparation course for international students who need additional English language and academic preparation, acts as a bridge for entry onto a UK university undergraduate course.
Some foundation programme is embedded as part of universities, based on campus with full access to university facilities and can guarantee progression, given the student achieves required scores.
POSTGRADUATE DEGREES IN THE UK
Masters in the UK generally lasting for just one year compared to two-year Masters programmes found elsewhere in the world. This means students can save time, money and begin their career much quicker. The average cost of a Masters degree’s tuition fee in the UK for an international student is £12,400. The spending may depend on which part of the UK you wish to live, and what university you attend. Postgraduate studies in the UK are far less expensive than graduate schools in the USA, and studying in the UK can be 30 to 60 percent cheaper than American equivalents.
