Bachelor's degree studies take 3 years. It is not necessary to study further, so many students prefer to start a career in their chosen specialty.
The duration of the master's program is 1 year. It is a very intensive program, but once the students receive their master's degree, they become much more in-demand in narrow fields.
Another stage of postgraduate education in the UK is postgraduate study. This program takes 3–4 years, and once the students have defended their theses, they receive a doctoral degree. These people usually become teachers or scientists.
