Study In The UK
UK universities provide internationally recognized qualifications of the highest standard. They also offer more opportunities than ever before: there are currently over 55,000 postgraduate taught courses and research opportunities to choose from on the Prospects database alone.
Delivering academic excellence and a high quality and standard of UK qualifications is guaranteed through the work of various official bodies, such as the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). Research standards are examined by the Research Assessment Exercise, which publishes its findings every five years. The results of all these assessments are freely available on the internet. Information on quality assurance and assessments is also available from the Higher Education Funding Councils.
In 2008/9 there were 139,095 students from outside the EEA studying postgraduate courses at UK institutions. The quality of UK degrees is one reason why so many people come to the UK to study. Another is value for money. Unlike equivalent programmes in the United States or Australia, most UK Masters programmes can be completed in one year.
