Completing a UK Master’s degree will not only give you an acclaimed degree that helps employers see your global experience, but you will also have the chance to encounter many different cultures and see a plethora of new places.  Earning your Master’s degree abroad will be the best choice you ever make.


Having an internationally renowned degree from a prestigious university

The degrees offered at our partner universities are recognised around the world.  Britain is well known for its prestigious universities and high academic standards, so you can be sure that you won’t have any problems returning to Canada to seek employment or working anywhere around the world. 

Experience an intensive program unique to the UK educational system

According to this survey, the UK has the 2nd best education system in Europe (behind Finland) and the 6th best in the world overall, while Canada only ranks 10th. If you choose to study at a UK university, you will be subject to a comprehensive program of study that is part of one of the top educational systems in the world.            

Most taught graduate courses in the UK last only one year, allowing the coursework to be more focused and in depth than one would find in a program stretched out over two or more years.  While the shortened length of study also allows for lower tuition costs, it also makes for a more concentrated curriculum.

Studying alongside a diverse cohort of students

The UK is a mecca for talented students from around the globe.  While studying at Across the Pond’s partner institutions, you will meet people and make friends from a wide variety of places, adding new perspectives and ideas to your discourse both inside and outside of the classroom.

The best part for us, was having friends to visit all around the world after finishing our program!

Having the chance to travel and experience new cultures

While abroad, you will have the chance to experience new people and places, gaining that international understanding so valued by employers in this global economy of today.  Once you’re actually over in the UK, it is quite simple to not only travel around the British Isles themselves, but also to hop over to the mainland Europe or even to North Africa at the weekend.
