The United Kingdom is a political union made up of four constituent countries: England, Scotland, Wales (The Great Britain) and Northern Ireland. The capital city is London. The two official languages in Britain are English and Welsh, English being the most widely spoken. Scottish Gaelic is also spoken in some parts of Scotland. The United Kingdom has a highly industrialized economy and the seventh-largest gross
domestic product in the world. It is the third most populous state in the European Union.

In an increasingly globalised world economy, people need special skills and qualities to succeed. Employers want
employees who can think effectively, creatively and independently. This is an essential part of the UK learning experience.

UK scientists and institutions have won almost 100 Nobel Prizes for their scientific achievements. The UK’s creative brains ‘artists, fashion designers, film and T.V stars, and leisure software designers’ are regarded as among the best in the world.
WHY STUDY IN UK
In the UK most undergraduate degree programs take three years to finish; however, the “sandwich course” is increasing in popularity, which is four years and involves one year in the work place (normally in your third year). In Scotland the courses are four years in length for undergraduate programs.
For graduate or masters programs they are generally shorter in length and undertaken after graduation of your undergraduate program. Some professional degrees like medicine, veterinary, law etc. have longer programs that can be as much as five years.
