International Colleges in UK

In the United Kingdom’s education system, “college" can refer to a secondary or high school, a college of further education, a training institution that awards trade qualifications, a higher education provider that does not have university status (often without its own degree-awarding powers), or a constituent part of a university. Traditionally, most major universities in the United Kingdom include one or more colleges which serve as constituent bodies of the original university, while usually focusing on a special university major. Additionally, in the case of the University of London, these colleges have expanded so much, that they are granted degree-awarding powers of their own by the parent university. Students in the UK can study in two kinds of colleges, “Further Education Colleges” and “Higher Education Colleges”. FE colleges serve as preparation platforms for future university students coming from secondary/high schools and include UK’s “A-level” courses. Consequently, HE colleges provide students with higher forms of education and operate in a similar style to “normal” colleges in other western countries like the US. These colleges offer courses at Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. levels.
