    And although the cost of education in UK may be higher when compared to other countries, the experience of studying in top universities of UK is an experience of a different league altogether. The undergraduate courses in UK generally are of 3 years duration, however in some science or engineering related undergraduate courses, the duration may be of 4 years.

    What qualifications will I need?

    The qualifications you need depend on the course you want to study. You'll be expected to have completed at least 13 years of education in your own country or the UK, and to have taken pre-university qualifications equivalent to UK A-levels, Scottish Highers or National Diplomas.



    If your qualifications don't match this, you can still study in the UK, you just to start at an earlier level. Search for career-based and pre-university courses.


    You'll find the exact entry requirements for each course on the course profiles on this website. The following will however give you an idea of the sort of qualifications you will need:


    HND
    Qualifications equivalent to one or two UK A-levels,
    two Scottish Highers or a Higher National Certificate
    or BTEC National Diploma; or an international foundation
    year. Plus IELTS 5.5-6.0
    Foundation Degree Qualifications equivalent to one or two UK A-levels,
    one or two Scottish Highers or a National Diploma;
    or an international foundation year. Plus IELTS 5.5-6.0

    three or four Scottish Highers, a Higher National Certificate
    or Diploma, or BTEC National Diploma; or an international
    foundation year. Plus IELTS 6.0-6.5




    What sorts of courses are available?


    Higher National Certificate (HNC) or Diploma (HND)
    Higher National Certificates and Diplomas are one- and two- year career-related higher education courses, which are equivalent to the first stages of a degree. They are available in many areas including engineering, sports studies, art and design, media and communications and music technology. On successful completion you can enter a career at junior management level or can choose to 'top-up' to a degree by transferring to the second or third year of the degree course.



    Foundation Degrees (FdA, FdSc etc)
    Foundation Degrees are two-year career-related higher education courses, which are equivalent to the first stages of a degree. They are available in many areas, including art and design, media and communications, engineering and hospitality management, and can be used as a good foundation for a career or as a basis from which you can progress on to a degree course.



    Diplomas of Higher Education

    Diplomas of Higher Education are two-year courses in subject areas usually related to the social sciences, such as education, theology, communication studies and social work. They are ideal for students hoping to progress to a career in these areas and also provide a foundation for higher education courses in the same subject area.



    Degrees

    Degrees are the most popular undergraduate qualification in the UK. They are academic courses, usually studied over three years in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, or four years in Scotland (where the title master's degree may be awarded). Some degree courses may be extended for a year to enable students to spend a year in industry (such as on engineering degrees) or overseas (such as on degrees in modern languages).




    University International Foundation Year
    University International Foundation Year courses help to bridge any gaps between qualifications you hold already and the ones you need to begin a degree course at a UK university, whether this is because you need to develop your English language skills, improve on your academic qualifications, or both.
