Has Anyone attended college or grad school in the UK?

Has anyone experienced the teaching styles of both the UK and the US universities. I'm curious because I'm interested in studying at UCL and I currently have only been in undergrad here in Boston. So what are the differences is one better than the other?

    • Although psychodynamics and psychoanalysis have fallen out of favor to a certain extent, the field is beyond competitive. It's always been my area of passion in psychology, though. Currently at the Derner Institute of Advaced Psychological Studies for their psychodynamic bias (every program has a slight bias toward one school of psychology).

  • I'm from Glasgow and university in the UK is more specialised than the US. For example I'm studying electronics with music, and all of my subjects are either one or the other with little choice. In the US it seems to be that you're encouraged to take a wide range of topics in your degree e.g. a guy in Yale was studying economics but had to take a chemistry class too. Its really breadth of knowledge vs specialisation I guess.

  • This doesn't exactly answer your question but I'm from London and UCL is rated one of the best universities in the UK and in the world. So I guess by that standard the teaching styles must contribute to it's reputation.
