About the University

Studying in the United Kingdom comes with a lot of opportunities which are below;
Brilliant work opportunities
Generally, an international student can work up to 20 hours a week during term-time, and ten hours when school is out. This allows students to take on a part-time job or an internship, to learn new skills and earn money while studying.
If you decide to study in the UK, you won’t be bored, there is always something to do no matter your interests are. The UK is a unique country, filled with many families with roots from around the world. This leaves the UK with a unique mix of different cultures, food, and interests.
Broad choice of degrees
UK universities are known for the wide range of degrees they offer in subjects as diverse as Art and Design, Business and Management and Media Studies.
You’ll have access to over 3,000 UK university degrees through Kaplan, so no matter what subject you’re interested in, you’re certain to find something that suits you. You might even discover a degree you didn’t even know existed!
In the UK, you can usually complete an undergraduate degree in 3 years if you study full time. A master’s degree usually takes 1 year.
This is in contrast to other countries such as the USA, where undergraduate degrees take at least 4 years to complete, and a master’s degree takes 2 years to finish.
So, if you choose to study in the UK, you’ll be able to graduate sooner, and save money on fees and accommodation too — what a great reason why you should study in the UK!
Largest library in the world
London is home to the largest library in the world by the number of items categorised — the British Library has more than 170 million items in its catalogue!
Located close to King’s Cross train station, the British Library is also home to the famous Reading Room, and is a popular place to come for quiet study. So, if your university library doesn’t have something you need, you can almost guarantee the British Library can help you.
