The UK has a well-deserved reputation worldwide for providing high quality and well-respected higher education. When you are choosing a course, make sure it is with a reputable university or college that has met strict standards set by the UK government and education sector.
There are 160 universities and colleges in the UK that are permitted to award a wide variety of degrees to suit most educational aspirations. All have degree-awarding powers recognised by the UK authorities (UK and Scottish Parliament, Welsh and Northern Ireland Assemblies). These are known as ‘recognised bodies’. See all institutions which are recognised by the UK authorities as having UK degree-awarding powers.
There are also over 700 colleges and other institutions which do not have degree-awarding powers but provide complete courses leading to recognised UK degrees. These are known as ‘listed bodies’. Courses at these institutions are validated by institutions which have degree-awarding powers. See all institutions which are enabled by the UK authorities to offer courses leading to a degree from a recognised body.
