Studii de licenta

S

Aplicatiile pentru studii de licenta (la zi) din Marea Britanie se fac prin platforma UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). Termenul de “student la licenta” se refera la studentul din cadrul unei universitati care la final va obtine o diploma de licenta (ceea ce de obicei dureaza trei ani in Anglia si patru ani in Scotia).

Unele programe de licenta pot avea inca un an de studiu inclus datorita integrarii unui an de plasament (sandwich year). Anul de plasament este oferit de multe universitati si ofera studentilor posibilitatea de a lucra pentru o perioada de timp intr-o industrie relevanta, inainte de a-si finaliza studiile. De exemplu, un astfel de program se va numi Licenta in Inginerie de Software cu an de plasament (Software Engineering with Placement/Sandwich). Plasamentul are loc intre al doilea si al treilea an de studiu, face oficial parte din studiile de licenta si te ajuta sa iei decizii in legatura cu viitoarea ta cariera. Nu este obligatoriu de efectuat, insa este foarte recomandat sa il urmezi, deoarece atunci cand vei absolvi si vei cauta de lucru, faptul ca deja ai un an de experienta te va avantaja in relatia cu potentialii angajatori.

Daca studiile tale de licenta dureaza trei ani, acceptarea anului de plasament va face ca durata totala a studiilor tale de licenta sa fie de patru ani.

Clasificarea diplomelor

Sistemul de clasificare este utilizat pentru a evalua studentii care au finalizat programul de studiu. Acest sistem este un indicator de masurare al realizarii din punct de vedere academic.

  • First class honours (1st) – medie de peste 70%
  • Second class honours
    • Upper second class honours (2:1)  medie intre 60-70%
    • Lower second class honours (2:2) medie intre 50-60%
  • Third class honours (3rd) medie intre 40-50%
    • Ordinary degree (Pass) →  trecut cu indeplinirea cerintelor minime
    • Fail → picat

O diploma Aegrotat este conferita studentilor care nu-si pot sustine examenele datorita unei boli. Aceasta este o diploma de absolvire fara clasificare, oferita pe baza faptului ca acel candidat la licenta ar fi trecut examenele daca boala i-ar fi permis sa le sustina.

Pentru a obtine un loc la studiile de licenta este necesara indeplinirea cerintelor de admitere (Bacalaureat, examen de limba engleza).

Applications to study at undergraduate level (full time) in the UK are made through the UCAS platform (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). The term undergraduate refers to a university student who is studying for their first degree and on completion, students are awarded a Bachelor’s Degree (which typically takes three years in England and Wales and four years in Scotland).

Some degree programs have an extra year added onto them due to the integration of a sandwich year. Sandwich courses are offered by many universities and this gives students the opportunity of working for a period of time in a relevant industry before completing their studies e.g. Software Engineering with Placement (sandwich). The work placement takes place between the 2nd and 3rd year of study, and is a formal part of your degree; it can also help you make decisions about your future career. It is not compulsory to do it but it’s strongly advisable to undertake a sandwich year where possible because on completion of your degree, when looking for employment, the fact you already possess a year of experience would put you in a better position with potential employers.

If your degree course lasts 3 years, taking a sandwich year would add another year making the total length of your degree to 4 years.

Degree Classification

The classification system is used to assess work students have completed from the start of their undergraduate degree program to the end. It is used as a measure of academic accomplishment.

  • First class honours(1st) 70% and above
  • Second class honours (2nd)
    • Upper second class honours (2:1) 60-70%
    • Lower second class honours (2:2) 50-60%
  • Third class honours(3rd) 40-50%
    • Ordinary degree → Pass (with the minimum required marks)
    • Fail

Aegrotat degree can sometimes be awarded to a student who is unable to take his or her examinations because of illness. This is an honours degree without classification, awarded on the clear understanding that had the candidate not been diagnosed as unwell, he or she would have passed.

Entry requirements would also need to be met in order to gain a place of study.
