The UK education system gives students the freedom to combine courses and subjects from different areas of studies, so you can tailor your degree to your own needs and interest.
Universities in the UK follow an academic calendar that begins in September and ends in July. Between this time, UK’s universities and colleges, like their counterparts in USA and Canada, accept students in three intakes.
- Fall or September/October Intake
- Winter or January/February Intake
- Summer/Spring or May Intake
The Winter Window: Don’t Pass Up
Undeniably the Fall intake is the most popular among international students. However, it will be unwise not to explore your options for the Winter intake as well, especially if you need more time on working on your application. There are a handful of UK universities that offer a host of both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in their Winter term. Please check out individual universities for offered courses and real-time updates on application deadlines.
Which Intake for Me?
Your decision will depend on your chosen university and preferred course, your past scholastic performance, your test scores, the acceptance rate of your university of choice, opening of application, class commencement, and your availability for the course. Consider the following.
