Universities in all parts of the UK have a worldwide reputation for high quality teaching and research, as evidenced by global rankings such as the QS World University Rankings and THE Global Rankings. This high standard is maintained by recruiting the best staff, building better campuses and stocking them with the best facilities.
Another reason for the UK’s draw is the wide variety of vocational courses for students to study, alongside the more traditional programmes as seen below.
How long do UK courses take to complete?
