How will UK universities maintain the standard of qualifications worldwide if teaching methods chang
UK higher education providers are globally recognised, with 4 providers in the top 10, and 18 providers in the top 100; they also have an excellent reputation for world-class research. UK degrees are of a high standard and are internationally valuable whatever form they take – whether they are delivered in person or online. There are some fantastic and innovative examples of high-quality online learning being delivered by institutions across the UK, and the sector is already working hard to prepare learning materials for the summer and autumn terms.
UK higher education providers are renowned for choice and flexibility. Students can choose from over 50,000 undergraduate and postgraduate courses, including a number of world-leading STEM, finance and business subjects, among many others. UK courses are also generally shorter than those in other countries, helping to reduce overall tuition fees and accommodation costs.
UK higher education degrees and qualifications, as well as the research conducted by our world-class universities, are recognised by employers and academics worldwide, and produce top graduates. Over 50 serving world leaders have benefited from a British education, and 83% of international graduates surveyed by Universities UK International (UUKi) said their UK degree helped them get their job.
