Undergraduate degrees in the UK are normally 3 or 4 years in length. 4 year courses usually add 1 year in another country studying language or in a work placement in industry. A handful of courses which lead to professional qualified status such as Architecture, Dentistry, Medicine and Veterinary Medicine are longer in length.

Whilst some courses, like Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science and Architecture take at least 5 years to complete, most undergraduate (BA and BSc) courses take 3 years. It is important to note though that undergraduate courses in Scotland take 4 years. There is another course called a sandwich course. It usually takes 4 years including a one year work experience segment following on from the second year. Students, especially those on hospitality courses for example, can come back to their home country to work. They can also choose to work in companies in the UK where they will receive full payment. Students have to write a report about their work experience to illustrate what they have learnt. This course is very popular for students on business, hospitably and fashion design courses.
