                              GRADUATE DEGREES IN THE UK
                              The Across the Pond UK partner universities have an outstanding range of top grad-
                              uate degree programs, most of which are offered in globally-leading departments.
                              Whether you have already completed a study abroad program and wish to pursue
                              British graduate degree or wish to study in the UK for the first time, we offer you op-
                              tions specific to your individual objectives and background.

                              A British master’s degree can bring several benefits compared to a corresponding
                              US degree. A recent IPSOS MORI survey has actually revealed that most employers
                              in the US consider degrees earned in the UK to be the same as or better than those
                              earned in the US.

“The scope here is not small. The potential you have to take your ideas
and have them considered in broader context and blown up to a worldwide
perspective is just something that you can’t get at every university but you
can get it here. And that’s enough to come across an ocean and study, just to
change the way you see the world.”
