Did you know that there are more than 240 colleges in UK?
We’re saying colleges, not universities. They’re two different institutions in UK. In fact, the acronym UCAS (the online application platform in UK higher education) stands for University and Colleges Admissions Service to note that a university and a college are different.
One thing every prospective student in UK must be aware of prior to starting is to have a basic knowledge of how the education system in the UK is designed. Often students that lack this information find the system to be very confusing.
At the very beginning, you must know that, in contrast to the US higher education where universities are usually regarded as colleges, in UK the college and the university are not the same thing. This is because of the way the whole system is organized. So, if you aim to get a university degree, you must not enroll in a college which would lead to another degree-level, but a university. Here is a list of universities in UK.
Since the university and the college are at two different degree levels in the UK education system, they’re basically different in terms of length, program, curriculum and the degrees they award.
A college is part of the Further Education, while the university is part of the Higher Education level, the highest among the five main stages of education in UK.
Similar to a large number of universities, UK is also proud of having a lot of colleges. As long there are many of them, one may find it difficult to track and filter them out. Below we bring you the most comprehensive list of colleges in UK
