Applying to a UK university is made easy through UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). Through this system, you can apply to a maximum of six institutions on one form.
Undergraduate degrees in universities of England, Northern Ireland and Wales are all three-year programmes. In contrast, as Scotland runs their own Scottish education system of 6-year high school education, undergraduate degrees are usually four-year programmes.
