We can confidently say that this task Britain has done: today, 157 higher education institutions entitled to confer bachelor's and master's degrees within the country and more than 550 out of the country.

The education system in Britain includes the following levels (names are in Russian and English):

  • Back to school - pre-school;
  • Primary and secondary school education - elementary/secondary school;
  • Preparation for University - A-level, International Foundation, international baccalaureate
  • Vocational training - further education;
  • First degree – bachelor's, baccalaureate;
  • Second degree – master's, masters;
  • Postgraduate research programmes - doctorate.
