Master studies in UK after leaving the EU?
The majority of citizens voted in favour of leaving the EU in the Brexit referendum. This is causing uncertainty among people who are interested in university studies in the United Kingdom. However, the exact terms of the resignation still have to be negotiated - a lengthy process. Accordingly, many of the consequences of Brexit cannot be foreseen yet. As a educational institute based in Germany/Schleswig-Holstein, cooperation with universities in EU member states is possible. Only in case of a No-Deal Brexit (Brexit without agreement), a cooperation with the London Met would no longer be possible. In this unlikely event, we have taken precautions together with London Met. In this exceptional case, the contracts concluded with you will be transferred to the European Centre for Distance Learning Ltd. in London and reliably completed from there. As a distance learning student, you would not perceive any change.
One year Master's programmes in the United Kingdom
In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, a Bachelor's degree usually lasts three years. In Scotland four years. The Master's, however, usually only takes one year. Two-year Master's programmes are rare.
Since the British Master's usually only last one year, the students normally end up with only four years of study - one year less than is actually prescribed by Bologna. Many students are concerned about whether the shorter British Master’s programme is also fully recognised in Germany. You shouldn't have any problems in the private sector since the individual qualification is important here. British Master's degrees are very well recognised in the economy.
However, it could become a problem in the civil service as well as in state-regulated professions and with receiving a doctorate. In all three areas it is almost always necessary to have five years of study in order to be admitted. Nevertheless, this is always a individual decisions made by the universities. Bachelor's and Master's degrees obtained in other European countries are not recognised by German universities without individual case examination.
