Education System in UK

The education system in the UK is divided into four main parts, primary education, secondary education, further education, and higher education. Children in the UK have to legally attend primary and secondary education which runs from about 5 years old until the student is 16 years old; after age 16, education is optional.
The education system in the UK is also split into “key stages” which breaks down as follows:
Key Stage 1: 5 to 7 years old
Key Stage 2: 7 to 11 years old
Key Stage 3: 11 to 14 years old
Key Stage 4: 14 to 16 years old
Generally, key stages 1 and 2 will be undertaken at primary school and at 11 years old a student will move onto secondary school and finish key stages 3 and 4.
Students are assessed at the end of each stage. The most important assessment occurs at age 16 when students pursue their GCSE’s or General Certificate of Secondary Education. Once a student finishes secondary education they have the option to extend into further education to take their A-Levels, GNVQ’s, BTEC’s or other such qualifications. UK students planning to go to college or university must complete further education. Once students complete their GCSE’s they have the choice to go onto further education and then potential higher education, or finish school and go into the working world. Most international students will enter directly into the UK higher education system, after completing their home country’s equivalent to the UK’s “further education.”

Entry Requirement for UK

The great thing about studying in the UK is that even if you don’t meet the requirements for one course, you can choose another suitable course at a different level. The UK offers a range of study options to suit international students at all levels.
The qualifications you need depend on the course you want to study. You should have completed at least 13 years of education in your own country or in the UK, and have taken pre-university qualifications equivalent to UK A-levels, Scottish Highers or National Diplomas.

Some schools may ask students to sit entrance exams in English and maths. The common entrance exam is also used by many schools for students who enter at the age of 13.

Some qualifications (such as A-levels Scottish Highers and BTEC National Diplomas) are below the university level and lead directly on to higher education.
