Associate and Bachelor programs in the UK & Ireland
Possible duration: 1 semester up to 2 years
Foundation programs are an ideal pathway for some students who want to study a bachelor degree in the UK and Ireland. Aimed at international students, they are offered as a stand-alone program either by a university or in partnership with a specialized college, or they are linked directly with a bachelor program, offering automatic progression into the first year following successful completion of the foundation year.
Would you like to know what YOUR study options are? Our UStudy UK & Ireland adviser will find a perfect match based on your preferences!
Possible duration: 1 semester up to 4 years
A bachelor program in the UK usually requires, on average, three years of full-time studying, depending on the type of program, or four years in Scotland. In Ireland, bachelor programs are also four years in duration. From Art History to Neuroscience, to Accounting and Software Engineering, UStudy students have the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of programs at one of the thousands hundreds of academic institutes in the country. The main difference between studying in the UK and Ireland and many other countries is that students can specialize in a single subject from their first week of the degree, for example, architecture, civil engineering, economics, geography, history, mathematics, physics, without the requirement to add other subjects as well. Degree programs specifically designed for careers, such as dentistry, law and medicine, can be taken at the bachelor level in the UK and Ireland, unlike say the US where they are only available as graduate programs. There is a wide variety of institutions in the UK and Ireland that offer bachelor programs, from the multi-faculty university with 40,000 students to the specialised institution, for example, a drama or music school, that maybe offers four or five programs studied by 400 students. Some institutions that are classed as universities are not known as such, for example, the London School of Economics is known as a ‘school’ and UCL is a college of the University of London, but both are leading global universities. With UStudy’s help, the opportunities are endless! Choose from all types of secondary schools, colleges and universities, from a dynamic urban campus to peaceful rural campus. Your dream can become reality! Get in touch with our UStudy UK & Ireland adviser Phil Moss now by email and schedule a Skype or phone consult to learn about your options and the application process.

UStudy helped me to set up an American-style resume, and their application specialists assisted me in composing proper application letters. I also took part in their ACT prep workshops, which led to my ACT test score going up. Without UStudy, I probably would not have succeeded; you have to take care of so many things!

I started dreaming of going to college in the US when I was 12. I got in touch with UStudy and that is how it all began. Now I am a junior at Manhattanville College in New York, where I major in Business management, with a minor in Economics.
My mother encouraged me to go to the GO USA Education Fair.
After talking to Marina about all the different options,
it came down to two places: Seattle or back to California – such a hard decision. I made a list of pros and cons.
That’s when I knew I had to go to Cali.
