UK University system


Bachelor’s degrees usually take three years to complete according to your choice of subject. If you are studying business you may be able to add an extra year to study abroad, or take a work placement. In Art and Design, you may need to complete a foundation course in the UK. apply2university can advise on these programmes.

Postgraduate Master’s degrees

Master’s degrees can be completed in one year in the UK which makes this an attractive option. A PhD degree in the UK can take between two and seven years.

You must be at least 21 years old and have completed a bachelor’s degree in your own country or in the UK. Most MBA courses require at least 2 years, working experience.
