British University System

The British university system is famous for its high-quality teaching and faculty. Bachelor's degree programs last an average of three years and offer opportunities for internships and study abroad. In addition, in many undergraduate programs it is possible to be simultaneously admitted to a master's degree program, which lasts one year.

In the British system, independent learning and critical thinking are encouraged. From the outset, students start in their chosen field, which differs from other university systems, where students often choose their major in the second year.


British Universities enjoy a solid international reputation, with several institutions ranking among the best in the world. The University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge are recognized worldwide, for their academic excellence and long-established traditions.

There are around 130 universities across the United Kingdom which are divided between the four constituent nations of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Access to them is standardized through a common tool (UCAS).
