UK Education System

The UK education system is structured so that students take two main sets of subject examinations prior to entry into university. The first set is called GCSEs or IGCSEs, which is studied over a 2 year period, and the second is called A Levels.

International students wishing to enter into the top UK universities can undertake A Levels (either the 2 year or 18 month course). If students have missed the grades for entry into their chosen course, a retake can be taken in the subject of choice subject to visa regulations for international students.

Some students may wish to study the University Foundation Programme (UFP). This intensive one year course is equivalent to A Levels and the International Baccalaureate (IB). The course is suitable for students who already know which university course they wish to pursue.
