University in UK vs in United States Anyone? [#permalink] New post 14 Jun 2004, 21:17
Hi,

I have a question regarding UK vs US universities. How does the system work in the UK. I am not sure if you can answer this question, but how is the exam structured. Do they have exams like here in the United States..quiz..midterm and finals exams or do they just have one exams per year?

How is the teachers in UK? Do i need a mentor or is it mostly group projects? Compare to UK vs US...what is the level of difficulties. I am interested in attending top 10 universities in the UK.


Another important question. Is our degree in United States almost the same in the UK?

I appreciate any advice. thanks

Jeez... I'm not too sure! I do know that the top European schools are structured pretty much the same as the top U.S. schools are... Some classes have a midterm, a final, and other tests in between, while others only have a final paper. It just depends on the class.

I don't think that one is systematically different from the other, but someone else please jump in if I'm wrong!
