Undergraduate Degrees in the UK

How long do undergraduate degrees last?

Many foreign students pursue a three-year undergraduate bachelor’s degree, which includes a mix of courses, conferences, and lectures comprising various modules. Since certain modules are optional, students can tailor their studies to their specific interests.

Some undergraduate degrees, such as science and engineering, can take up to four years to complete, but the introduction of fast-track two-year degrees allows students to finish their undergraduate studies and find work much faster.

Types of undergraduate degree

A joint or dual-honors undergraduate degree, in addition to the regular three-year undergraduate degree, allows students to divide their time between two separate classes, giving them a wider range of modules to choose from and more career opportunities after graduation.

A sandwich course lasts four years and includes one year of work experience in an area relevant to your studies.

Short undergraduate degrees

  • Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE) – Lasts for one year full-time and two years part-time.
  • Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE) – A 2-year full-time degree course.

Since neither of the above fast-track degree choices leads to postgraduate study, students can change their minds and enroll in a longer three-year program.
