Living in U.K.

The UK is an exciting combination of four distinctive countries, each with their own cultures, living traditions, breathtaking architecture – new and old – and incredibly beautiful landscapes. Whatever your destination England, Wales, Northern Ireland or Scotland you’ll be immersed in a fascinating mix of history and innovation.

Most master’s degrees and MBA’s at UK universities last one year compared to two in most other countries, including the USA and Australia. While you’re in UK, you’ll be immersed in English, the world’s most important business language. At the same time, you’ll be part of a truly international community – 29.9 per cent of postgraduate students in the UK are international and you may find as many as 50 different nationalities on a single campus. UK postgraduate qualifications are respected and valued all over the world. A master’s degree, PhD or MBA from a UK university will give you an edge over the competition. It will prove to employers that you’re capable of independent thought and self-discipline, used to conducting and analysing your own research and will let them know that you can make a real contribution to their company or organization.

A UK undergraduate education gives you an amazing opportunity to immerse yourself in a subject that fascinates you. Whether you choose to study for a degree, Foundation Degree or HND, you’ll learn to think for yourself and work independently, learning research skills and presentation methods you’ll continue to use long after you leave university. Your experience will set you up for the rest of your life.
Courses can last for up to three years (four with a placement in industry or overseas; though most Scottish institutions run 4-year courses as standard, with or without placement), and you can choose from thousands of opportunities in science and technology, computing and business, art and design, social sciences, the humanities and many others. The broad range and flexible approach of the UK education system means that you’re free to choose exactly what you want to study.
