Undergraduate Study in the UK for Indian Students

Undergraduate Study in the UK

Undergraduate programme information for Indian students.

Undergraduate Degrees in the UK

International undergraduate applications to all UK universities are managed by UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) and, as an official UCAS centre, SI-UK’s professional university consultants can guide you through the entire university application process.

How long do undergraduate degrees last?

For a first degree, most Indian students undertake a three-year undergraduate bachelor's degree, featuring a combination of seminars, workshops and lectures made up of different modules. Certain modules are optional, and as such students can tailor study to what they are most interested in.

Some undergraduate degrees, such as a science and engineering, can take up to four years to complete, while the introduction of fast-track 2-year degrees enable students to complete their undergraduate course and find a job much quicker.

Types of undergraduate degree

In addition to the standard 3-year undergraduate degree, a joint or dual-honours undergraduate degree will see students split their time across two different courses, meaning a larger choice of modules and increased job options after you graduate.

A sandwich course will last four years and involve spending one year at a work placement related to your field of study.

Short undergraduate degrees

  • Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE) – Lasts for one year full-time and two years part-time.
  • Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE) – A 2-year full-time degree course.

Neither of the above fast-track degree options lead to postgraduate study, but students can move into an extended three-year degree if they change their mind.
