Degrees at Universities

Undergraduate studies

It is important to remember that the UK has a very wide and varied offer.  Each university develops its own degree programmes and sets its own entry requirements. 

UK universities accept Spanish Bachillerato qualifications. So make sure you look around and see which degree suits you best and which programmes you can realistically opt for with your qualifications or expected bachillerato marks. 

Remember that many degree courses can be accessed via a Foundation course.  These are one-year pre-degree courses  which help students develop essentials skills and knowledge related to their chosen field of study. 

University web pages have all the information you need and you can search for courses at Study UK. Degree programmes in the UK can last for either 3 or 4 years, depending on the course and university. A great way of getting first-hand information about studying in the UK is by visiting our Education Fairs in Spain.

Remember too that all applications for undergraduate programmes must be made via a central application system UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). Deadlines are generally 15 October for all medical, dentistry and veterinary programmes as well as Oxford and Cambridge while all other courses tend to have a 15 January deadline. However it is important to check!

Postgraduate study

A postgraduate qualification from the UK can really make a difference to your career. UK postgraduate courses help you both specialise in your field and improve your English.  

Traditionally applications for postgraduate studies should be made directly to the UK university where you wish to study, however more and more universities are now managing applications through UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service).

UK university representatives at our Education Fairs will be more than happy to talk to you about their institution’s post-graduate offer.
