Higher education in the UK can be considered a benchmark in many areas: from business and finance to architecture and engineering. Not the least criterion is further employment and the level of wages that students can apply for after successfully graduating from English universities. A study of wages and unemployment rates among university graduates in developed countries found that graduates of higher educational institutions have the greatest chances of getting a high-paying job in a prestigious company.

In England, most undergraduate programs last 3 years. Exceptions will be International Foundation Prep Year programs and courses that include a Sandwich Course.
A Master's degree in England is one of the most sought-after destinations for students. This is due to factors such as:
- prospects after graduation
- high quality teaching
- acquiring professional connections
- short duration of the program itself.
Basically, a master's degree in England lasts only 1 year, which is an absolute advantage over most other countries. However, for students who either lack the level of academic English or for some other reason do not meet the entrance requirements, many universities have Pre-master's programs. The same course will allow students to successfully enroll in almost any master's program (regardless of the direction in which they studied at the bachelor's degree).
- Bachelor's programs - 3-4 years
- Master's programs - 1-2 years.
