England



Generally Students from a European Economic Area (EEA) country can work in the UK . No formal permission is needed, but be ready to show an employer your passport or identity card as proof of nationality.

The UK offers students the opportunity to gain an internationally recognised and respected academic qualification, whilst at the same time experiencing life in a culturally rich and diverse environment.

British universities encourage students to think creatively and independently in a stimulating learning environment, providing them with the confidence, knowledge and ability to excel in their chosen career. Employers across the world recognise and value the quality of a UK university education.

The quality of teaching in UK universities is rigorously assessed by the British Government's Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). Subject areas and departments at each university are assessed on criteria such as curriculum design, assessment, student support, learning resources etc. Subjects are then given a rating of “Excellent”, “Satisfactory” or “Unsatisfactory”, and departments are given a score out of 24 (with anything over 22 considered as excellent).

Entry requirements differ at each university. Typically, those universities with higher rankings will have higher entry requirements. For entry onto taught Masters programmes, most universities would require a good first degree and evidence of English language ability. Students who have not been educated in English would usually be required have an internationally recognised English language qualification such as IELTS or TOEFL before joining the university. Minimum IELTS score for entry to UK postgraduate courses varies from between 6 and 7. The minimum requirement for postgraduate entry in most UK universities is 6.5. Higher scores will be required for disciplines which require higher degrees of literacy (e.g. English Literature may require IELTS 7.5). For those who don't get the required scores most universities run intensive English language courses to bring you up to the right level. You will have to pay a fee for these courses as well as finding the money to cover the additional living costs incurred during the extra time spent in the UK .
