Studies in the UK 

The United Kingdom universities offer the most varied range of undergraduate, master's and doctoral programs in English. One of the biggest advantages is that many universities offer the possibility to combine different specializations within the same faculty, such as criminology with psychology or mathematics with finance; or even from different faculties, such as physics with philosophy. Also, in addition to flexibility, in the UK there are some of the best universities in the world, both academically and also taking into account the innovations in the areas in which they excel.

The undergraduate degree programs have a duration of three years, and the students who want to practice have the opportunity to opt for a "sandwich" type program between year 2 and year 4. For those who study a theoretical field, the universities provide a whole year of cultural exchange at a partner university in different countries or even continents.

In choosing the right university, students consider not only the position in the rankings, but also the location of the university campus. Some are attracted by the lights of London, others with the friendly atmosphere of Worcester. Currently, there is no corner in England, Scotland or Wales where you will not meet Romanian students.
