As an Indian student with an undergraduate degree, it is advisable to seek institutions in the UK that prioritize practical knowledge, hands-on experience, and job readiness. Universities and colleges in the UK follow a research-based learning approach, allowing you to apply the concepts and ideas you acquire in the classroom.

In the UK, you have the option to choose between two types of postgraduate courses: taught and research. Taught master’s programs, typically MA or MSc degrees, have a duration of 12 months for full-time study and 24 months for part-time study. On the other hand, research master’s programs usually lead to MPhil degrees and are more intensive, taking 18 to 36 months to complete.
