The UK is one of the countries which come to mind while planning for overseas education. The UK stands in the 2nd position amongst the world’s most desirable and leading destinations for higher education, with four of its universities making to the top 10 among the best universities in the world.

According to the UK’s Higher Education Statistical Agency (HESA), in 2018-19:

About 15% of the top Business Schools in the world, including Judge Business School (Cambridge University) and Said Business School (Oxford University), are in the UK. Here is a list of top-ranking business schools in the UK, as per the Financial Times Global MBA rankings 2020:

There are four main categories of taught programmes- Master of Arts (MA), Master of Science (MSc), Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Engineering (MEng), with each lasting for 1-2 years.

Students need to attend weekly seminars, tutorials and lectures in taught programmes and are assessed on the basis of exams, dissertation or project.

For a Research Master’s, students are expected to work on a schedule, submit a thesis by the end of their research and work under the supervision of a faculty advisor. PhD, Master of Science (MSc), Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Master of Research (MRes) are some of the research degrees offered in the UK.

The best part about the UK universities is that, for MBA and Master’s programs, only 15 years of education is needed.


Owing to a 3-year bachelor’s degree offered by UK universities, the UK is a hit with undergraduate international applicants. Apart from the 3-year bachelor’s degrees, the other types of undergraduate courses offered in the UK are:
