We often describe our UK degrees as focused. Let's dive into what that really means, why they are beneficial to our students, and resources you can use to make your degree course choice simple.
What is a focused degree?
When students study in the UK they dive head first into their chosen program of study for three consecutive years (for an undergraduate degree). Essentially, focused degrees allow students to get the most out of their intended program. Over the course of their degree, students will learn the nitty gritty of an area including the skills necessary to thrive in the field.
Of course this doesn't mean students can't explore their other interests. Our seven partner universities offer hundreds of clubs and societies in which students can join groups or organizations in a variety of topics and passions.
