As with all the UK, qualifications from England are recognised and respected throughout the world. Your qualification will be a solid foundation for building your future, boosting your career and prospects for a higher salary.
You can choose from a variety of routes through the education and training system, combining different types of course according to your needs and abilities.
English degrees can take only three years and postgraduate master's courses only one year ' compared with four years and two years in most other countries. This means you will save a great deal on both tuition fees and living costs ' and you will be able to start working and earning money sooner. English degree courses are shorter because they are more intensive, and therefore more efficient in terms of your time and money.
Innovative, original and with an amazing history, the UK's courses and qualifications are as varied as its landscape
What information should I check about the institution I want to study at?
It is very important that you check whether the institution you want to attend is in the Register before you make your immigration application. If the institution is not in the Register, your application will be refused.
The following education and training providers are automatically included in the Register:
* institutions that have been inspected and approved by government inspection bodies.
All other institutions have to apply to be included in the Register. However, their inclusion provides no guarantee of the quality or standard of their courses.
