As mentioned earlier in this guide, England is a country where many people decide to go for university because of its rich culture, amazing history, and overall commitment to the advancement of higher education. English schools are among the best in the world and are known for their commitment to producing students that can think independently, critically, and creatively.

There are a variety of reasons for you to consider studying in England, but it’s worth taking a look at the degree program that you are considering. There are many courses that the English excel at teaching, and in this part of the guide, we’ll take a look at some of the best ones.

Business

London is one of the best business centers in the world, and the entire country’s business courses seem to benefit from it, because one of the places where the English really excel is in business. Business degrees can include courses in the following fields:

  • Business administration
  • Accounting
  • Economics
  • Health Care Management
  • General Business
  • Small business management
  • Advertising
  • Marketing
  • Human Resources
  • Information Technology
  • International Business
  • Real Estate

The MBA programs in England, especially those at universities in and around London, are incredibly competitive and hard to get into. The largest portion of undergraduate degree students are in business courses as well, which says a lot for what the country is doing in business. Almost 20,000 business degree graduates per year obtain jobs or pursue higher education within six months of graduation as well. The high success rate and the experience that business students get by living in England make England a great place to study any type of business field.

Medical Fields

If you want to become a doctor, then you may want to consider going to school in England. England has a variety of great schools that have great degree programs. There are countless hospitals around the country that constantly need those with medical degrees, and there are always jobs with the National Health Service. Actually, it can be said that the universal health care system that the NHS has provided played a large role in the success of doctors in England, because over 90% of medical degree graduates end up working in England.  Here are some of the degrees that you will see:

  • Nursing
  • Oncology
  • Obstetrics and Gynecology
  • General Physician
  • Psychology
  • Chiropractic medicine
  • Physical Therapy
  • Audiology
  • Physician Assistants
  • Optometry and Ophthalmology
  • Other various medical fields

Along with traditional medicine fields, dentistry (including orthodontics) is another great field for those studying in England, and they see similar results to other medical fields (99% obtaining jobs or getting more education in 6 months, 90+% staying in England). If you want to be a nurse, doctor, medical transcription, dentist, or some other profession in the realm of medicine and dentistry, England is an amazing place to get your education.

Teacher Education

There are some countries that do well in their education programs, and then there are others that really excel.  All of the United Kingdom is of the latter, but especially if you are receiving your teaching degree at an English University. England is known for its stellar primary and secondary education programs, and a lot of that is because their teacher education courses are incredibly well organized. The government standards for university teacher education courses are very high, and if you do not achieve those standards, you will not be licensed to teach. On top of that, most people who go to university in England for teacher education end up going back for postgraduate work or getting a job in the United Kingdom within 6 months of graduation (85%+).

Veterinary Science

Veterinary science is another field that really shines in English Universities. This may seem strange, because most people associate England with “London,” and assume much of the country is urban, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Much of England is rolling moors and plains, which makes veterinary science an incredibly important degree program to have due to the large farms. Much of England’s economy is based in farming and agriculture, so veterinarians help to supplement that economy by caring for the livestock. That means that their veterinarians need to have the best education possible. English schools that have veterinary science programs have very high standards for those who enter the programs and their programs are incredibly intense with a lot of field work included in the curriculum. Most veterinary science graduates go on to further education or they start working in the field shortly after graduation.

Law

Law is another field that deserves to be mentioned when discussing education in England. England has a variety of excellent law programs, from undergraduate pre-law courses to postgraduate law degrees. Many people decide to go to England for law school because it takes a lot less time than it does in countries like the United States. In some countries, it can take up to ten years for someone to complete their law degree, going from an undergraduate degree straight through to their PhD or other advanced law degree (what it is called is different depending on where you receive your degree). In England, even though the program is much more intense, you can complete your law degree in about half that time (five to seven years). On top of that, many people who study law in England get jobs within six months of graduation. Overall, England is a great place for students who are at any point in their law school career (undergraduate or postgraduate).

The universities in England that offer these courses ensure that their students have the best education possible so that they can succeed in whatever field that they decide to pursue. If you are considering any of these degree programs, then England is definitely a great choice for you to consider for your undergraduate or postgraduate education. There are other courses that England does well in as well, which we will explore later on in this guide.
