International undergraduate applications to all UK universities are managed by UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) and, as an official UCAS centre, SI-UK’s professional university consultants can guide you through the entire university application process.
For a first degree, most Ugandan students study a three-year undergraduate bachelor's degree, featuring a combination of seminars, workshops and lectures made up of different modules. Certain modules are optional, and as such students can tailor study to what they are most interested in.
Some undergraduate degrees, such as a science and engineering, can take up to four years to complete, whilst the introduction of fast-track 2-year degrees enable students to complete their undergraduate course and find a job much quicker.
In addition to the standard 3-year undergraduate degree, a joint or dual-honours undergraduate degree will see students split their time across two different courses, meaning a larger choice of modules and increased job options after you graduate.
A sandwich course will last four years and involve spending one year at a work placement related to your field of study.
Neither of the above fast-track degree options lead to postgraduate study, but students can move into an extended three-year degree if they change their mind.
Undergraduate courses at UK universities provide world class teaching, state-of-the-art facilities and global recognition from employers.

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
