Intensity of classes
Studying in British universities takes all the time even for talented students. In addition to lectures, they are engaged in individual projects and assignments - this is how the issue of developing scientific independence is solved, critical thinking is developed. Most of the curriculum is hands-on training. Tutor support works in universities: each student is assigned a tutor who monitors progress, and a consultant on issues related to training. The size of the groups is from 5-7 to 15 people.
About 20% of students cannot withstand the academic load. Another common reason for dropouts is high tuition fees. If a student is expelled in the first year of study, he receives a certificate of higher education, if in the second - a diploma of incomplete higher education.
The UK is struggling with a high immigration rate, so the rules for international students are only getting stricter. Without work experience, it is difficult for students from Russia to find a job, but the chances increase outside the Kingdom. The British diploma is highly regarded among international companies, European and Asian. After graduating from the bachelor's degree, foreign students often remain to study in the master's program, which lasts only 1 year, but for this it is necessary to pass a high competition. For admission, you will need: an essay, diploma, recommendations, portfolio or a project for future research.
