Further Education in the UK
· Three-year degree courses
Leading to awards such as Bachelor of Arts (BA),
Bachelor of Science (BSc).

· Four-year degree courses
Including many degree courses in Scotland,

· Masters courses
going into greater depth (e.g. Master in Mathematics); sandwich courses - involving one year in industry, and courses with a year abroad.

· Two-year Higher National Diploma or Diploma of Higher Education courses
Often students transfer at the end of these courses to complete a degree course.

· Part-time courses
Many degree and diploma courses can also be taken
on a part-time basis over a longer period of time.
Applications for part-time courses should be made direct, not through UCAS.
