UK Education : Departments
Some UK courses have a well deserved international reputation
and high standards of entry.
There are various department heads. Each department provides a variety
of courses. The level of qualification required and acceptable by each
department may differ. Some departments may accept assessments of prior
experimental learning (APEL).
In this case you can provide evidence
of your previous acquired skills and knowledge by presenting a portfolio
or taking a test.
Some courses (where work experience forms a part of course) grant permission
to work. It is a valuable opportunity for overseas students since permission
to work is generally hard to get. So check out for a department having
good contact with industry and business that facilitate better work placement
opportunities or involve you with a relevant project which could be valuable.
