Start your degree at your university

Once you successfully complete your NCUK qualification, you would have reached the long-awaited moment of moving abroad to complete your university studies. As much as this might seem a daunting prospect, you will be able to start your academic course and get the most of your international study experience.

Many universities are planning on running the academic year as usual, so you should be prepared to move out for when the course starts. However, some other universities will start teaching online and allow students back on campus once current restrictions start to lift. This means you can start your degree in the comfort of your own home and then go to university as soon as it is permitted to do so!

For some of our universities, you should be expected to start on the dates below:

  • UK: start your course in September 2021. The UK has currently a travel traffic-light system in place for students travelling into the country. This system is frequently reviewed and you can find more information here. More information on how the Higher Education sector is reopening in the UK can be found here.
  • Australia: start your course in July online and move to Australia once borders reopen.
  • New Zealand: similar to Australia, you should expect to start online in July 2021 with the opportunity to travel once current restrictions lift.

What happens next? In order to start this year, we recommend that you accept your university offer to confirm your place once your grades are released. That way, you will make sure that you secure your place at university and start planning accordingly.

Do not delay your learning, continue with your studies and get to where you want to be with NCUK!
