An undergraduate degree in the UK is typically three years long, with some exceptions that are four years long, such as degrees with study years abroad. Vocational degrees are normally longer and often include postgraduate training on top of undergraduate education.
Upon successful completion of an undergraduate degree in the UK, students are awarded with either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Sciences (BSc) qualification.
Undergraduate education in the UK can be single-disciplinary and involve the in-depth study of one subject.
Joint degrees are also offered by many universities. Examples include English and History or Law and a Foreign Language. Such programmes allow students to embark on the specialist study of two subjects and may be a year longer than single-disciplinary degrees.
