College and university

University

Gain a degree and life experience at university.

Depending on what they study, courses are a mix of practical, vocational and academic learning, exploring a particular subject.

They'll typically study for four years before you get a qualification.

It’s great if they’re independent – they’ll have less lectures and classes, but will have to do more reading and learning in your own time.

Study for degrees, Master courses and postgraduate courses – and open up doors into highly specialised courses.
