Welcome to the country information for students from Syria.
We visit many countries in the Middle East throughout the year, especially in the autumn and spring months. Find out about our scheduled visits.
Most bachelors degrees in the UK are three years in duration and masters degrees are one year. The teaching style here means that students focus more closely on their subject of study and complete fewer general education classes and electives. This is an advantage to Syrian students because it means you can complete your degree in a shorter amount of time and therefore pay one year's less tuition. Degrees from UK universities are recognised around the world and are considered to be of the highest quality.
All students from outside the United Kingdom need to meet our English language requirements. These depend on whether you are applying for pre-degree, undergraduate or postgraduate level.
If you don't achieve the required score, you may be eligible to join our pre-sessional English language course.
