Whether you’re looking for a change in direction or you have a set career goal you want to achieve, studying for a British Degree can enhance your employment opportunities:


Academic Recognition

British degrees and universities are internationally recognised as being some of the best in the world; according to The Times 2016, the UK comes in at second place, after the USA.

However, tuition fees in the USA are often double the cost of those in the UK.

Therefore, choosing to study for a British degree could save you thousands!

British undergraduate degrees are globally accepted; meaning you can easily go on to study for Masters and PhDs anywhere in the world.


Impress Employers

Studying for a degree is not an easy task for anyone, especially if English is not your first language. Employers will be impressed by your dedication and commitment to achieving your goals.

Some British degrees are available to study online. Taking the time to study for an online degree shows employers you are independent, can manage your own workload and have a clear idea about of how a degree will add value to your career.

Most Senior Positions are for Graduates

Whilst a wealth of experience is attractive to potential employers, a vast number of higher-level roles such as managerial positions usually ask for someone with a degree. Furthermore, if you find that you are constantly competing against candidates with similar employment experience, you could gain the upper advantage with a degree.

Some of the highest paid positions are in areas of business, marketing, IT and finance. The one thing these have in common, is that employers usually require a degree.

If you are aiming for a higher paid position, then it is worth considering whether you should complete a degree.

Studies have also found a university degree is worth up to £117,000 in additional earnings throughout a person’s working life. From a financial perspective, it makes sense to invest in a degree.


International Experience

International experience is a fantastic addition when applying for a job. It shows you can move out of your comfort zone and adapt to new situations; which is key when starting a new career.

Furthermore, as most British degrees tend to focus on academic reading and writing, you’ll have the opportunity to improve your English skills in the process.

Finally, it is becoming the norm for large businesses across the world to adopt English as their corporate language, even if their offices are not located in a predominantly English-speaking country. A British degree therefore proves to employers you possess a high-level understanding of English required for the job.
